Probe of AT&T purchase sought

The head of the Senate antitrust panel -- Ohio Democrat Howard Metzenbaum -- said he will ask the Justice Department to scrutinize "every facet" of American Telephone & Telegraph Co.'s plans to buy the nation's biggest cellular company.

"Consumers should reap the benefits of robust competition in the cellular phone and long-distance industries," he said "If this deal makes that less, likely I would urge the Justice Department to block it."
