SAN FRANCISCO - A federal appeals court has ordered the writings of Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski be sold online.

The decision Friday upholds a lower court ruling.

Proceeds from the sale will be given to Kaczynski's victims and their survivors. A judge had ordered Kaczynski to pay $15 million in restitution.

Representing himself, Kaczynski objected to the online sale and argued he should retain control of the papers.

The appeals court also ruled that bomb-making materials and instructions - seized during Kaczynski's 1996 arrest and raid at his Montana cabin - should be destroyed.

Kaczynski is serving a life sentence for killing three people and injuring 23 during a nationwide bombing campaign between 1978 and 1995.
