Bomber Eric Rudolph apologizes

The man who bombed the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta has apologized to his victims.

At his sentencing today, Eric Rudolph said he would "do anything to take that night back." He said responsibility for the bombing in Centennial Olympic Park "belongs to me and me alone."

One person was killed and more than 100 hurt.

Rudolph's apology contrasts to his behavior earlier in the hearing, when he smiled and rolled his eyes as speakers challenged his anti-abortion and anti-homosexual beliefs. He was sentenced to life without parole.

Among those speaking at the hearing were the husband and daughter of the woman who was killed. John Hawthorne called Rudolph a "very small man" who used a bomb to compensate for what he lacked.

Fallon Stubbs, who was injured in the blast, said Rudolph taught her tolerance for people who are different.
