CBS News: Saudi Arabian Man No Longer Considered Suspect in Boston Marathon Bombing; Man Was Injured Spectator

by Colonel on April 16, 2013

“A law enforcement source told CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton that one of the explosive devices appears to have been placed in a metal pressure cooker … which had been placed in a black nylon bag or backpack. Investigators also found pieces of an electronic circuit board possibly indicating a timer was used in the detonation of the bomb.

A law enforcement official told CBS News that the two bombs that exploded were made to look like discarded property. It is still unknown if one or both bombs were in garbage cans. One may have been on the sidewalk.

The bombs were described as “low explosive,” but with “anti-personnel” packing. The official said there were apparently things like BB’s, ball bearings and nails in the bombs.

Law enforcement sources told CBS News’ Milton that a Saudi Arabian man who was being questioned by investigators is not being considered a suspect at this time, and it appears that he was a spectator who was injured in the attack.
