Photos of Boston Marathon Bomb Fragments Shown by Police Leaked by FBI and Media

Police in the United States have shown what they believe to be the fragments of one of two incendiary devices which exploded near the finishing line of the Boston marathon on Monday.

Officers say an everyday kitchen pressure cooker was packed not only with explosives but also ball bearings and nails to make it even more lethal.

Investigators now know how, where and when the atrocity occurred, but say they still have no idea about who planted the devices or why.

The bulletin was obtained by The Associated Press.

Both explosive devices used in the Boston Marathon attack appear to have been placed in metal pressure cookers packed with nails and ball bearings designed to amplify the damage from the explosions, CBS News correspondent Bob Orr reports.” – Read more on CBS News
