Jihad in Boston. “Authorities ID suspect as Saudi national in marathon bombings, under guard at Boston hospital,” from the New York Post, April 15:
Investigators have a suspect “” a Saudi Arabian national “” in the horrific Boston Marathon bombings, The Post has learned.
Law enforcement sources said the 20-year-old suspect was under guard at an undisclosed Boston hospital.
It was not immediately clear why the man was hospitalized and whether he was injured in the attack or in his apprehension.
The man was caught less than two hours after the 2:50 p.m. bombing on the finish line of the race, in the heart of Boston.
In addition, Boston police have has surveillance video of someone bringing multiple backpacks to blast site, according to CBS News.
Police also confirmed that there was a third explosion, at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. It was not immediately clear how much damage was done or whether it was related to the bombings at the marathon finish line.
The library bombing occurred about 4:30 p.m. and more than a mile from the marathon.
A law enforcement source confirmed to The Post that 12 people were killed and nearly 50 were injured in today’s blast.
UPDATE: CBS and other sources say that police deny that they have a suspect in custody, but CBS also says that they’re questioning possibly someone linked to the attack. The situation is unclear at this point, but despite the chorus of denials and numerous Leftists and Islamic supremacists crowing on Twitter, the New York Post story about the “Saudi national” has not been changed or taken down. I will keep you posted.
