U.S. attorney to reopen inquiry into '88 blast that killed 6 firefighters

The U.S. attorney in Kansas City, Mo., has asked the Justice Department to appoint a special attorney to review convictions in the firefighters explosion case. The move was prompted by an investigation published in The Kansas City Star on Sunday in which witnesses said a federal investigator pressured them to lie and a new witness said a security guard implicated herself in the explosions that killed six Kansas City firefighters in 1988.
