"A group of students from Falwell's Liberty University staged a counterprotest.

And Campbell County authorities arrested a Liberty University student
for having several homemade bombs in his car.

The student, 19-year-old Mark D. Uhl of Amissville, Va., reportedly
told authorities that he was making the bombs to stop protesters from
disrupting the funeral service. The devices were made of a combination
of gasoline and detergent, a law enforcement official told ABC News'
Pierre Thomas. They were "slow burn," according to the official, and
would not have been very destructive.

"There were indications that there were others involved in the
manufacturing of these devices and we are still investigating these
individuals with the assistance of ATF [Alcohol, Tobacco and
Firearms], Virginia State Police and FBI. At this time it is not
believed that these devices were going to be used to interrupt the
funeral services at Liberty University," the Campbell County Sheriff's
Office said in a release.

Three other suspects are being sought, one of whom is a soldier from
Fort Benning, Ga., and another is a high school student. No
information was available on the third suspect. "
