They've caught him, he was hiding in a boat in someone's yard.

Same day 45 were killed in iraq bombing but its :coffee:


That was horrific what's happened to those poor Iraqi people. Updated figures say "at least" 55 dead. :(



I wonder what/if new security measures will be forced through to react to this Boston incident?

And a small point I know, but has anyone seen any references to the police bomb squad being on the scene to detonate a device at the library that day anywhere else in the media? The Boston Globe newspaper tweeted it and I find it perplexing that there's been no mention of it elsewhere, at least that I've come across, especially considering there's been many fact-starved TV news stations desperate for more info to publish... so why would they ignore the bomb squad being at an explosion? Maybe I just missed it, I've not spent hours searching. :shrug:

What happened there was it was close in proximity to the two explosions, about 4 miles, so the excitable media reported it as another explosion when in fact it was a completely unrelated mechanical or electrical fire. The story broke on twitter from people listening to police scanners.
