Alabama Attorney General Troy King says the person or persons responsible for a string of church fires is "a coward" and will be apprehended.

King made the remarks during an appearance today on the CBS "Early Show." He said the nine fires in West and Central Alabama has prompted citizens in rural areas statewide to stand guard, even sleep in houses of worship, in an effort to protect them.

King also said an unprecedented amount of resources have been deployed to Alabama to catch those responsible.
