A suspect has been identified in the bombings that took place on Monday, April 15, at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

The suspect was seen on surveillance footage which showed a young man carrying, and perhaps dropping, a black bag at the second bombing scene. The camera at Lord & Taylor, located directly across the street from where the bomb went off, provided investigators with a clear video of the area, according to an unnamed official as cited by Fox News.

The circuit board suspected of being used to detonate at least one of the bombs has been recovered, and FBI investigators continue to scan and analyze the cell phone tower records to identify positive hits for signs of calls that may have triggered both explosions from remote locations.

There are continuing reports that the type of bomb used in the deadly blast was a “pressure cooker.”  Such bombs have been used in the past in major bombings in India, Pakistan and Afghanistan.  Descriptions of the efficacy of such bombs and even explanations for how to build them can be found in Al Qaeda’s online magazine, Inspire. There are conflicting reports about whether an arrest has already been made, but all agree a suspect has been identified.

The third fatality of the bombings was identified today as a Boston University graduate student, Lingzu Lu. Lu is a Chinese national who had been studying mathematics and statistics.

UPDATE 3:23 pm ET: Boston federal courthouse has been evacuated after a bomb threat was called in.

    New Voice For Jewish Nationalism.

    We can no longer allow the state of Israel to be attacked by political, economical and media means.

    Israel it too busy attacking and undermining itself, having confused and scrambled message and it needs help.

    Here, in the United States, the Jewish organizations, the Rabbinical leadership and Jews, by last name only, lack all consciousness and thus attack Israel constantly and on a daily basis.

    Europe is just about to be Judenrein (Judenfrei [free of Jews]] and Jews in America – blind and deaf similar to the way Jews acted when Adolf Hitler came to power.

    When the question is asked, 'can the Holocaust happen again' the answer is, YES; one nuclear bomb to fall on Tel Aviv and it is all over for the Jews.

    We have decided that we have to be the voice of Israel and Jews.

    We are a grassroots group of people, spread all over the world, and our full intention to give honor and prestige and to protect Jews throughout the world.

    'Thus hath R. Johanan said: in the generation when the son of David [i.e., Messiah] will come, scholars will be few in number, and as for the rest, their eyes will fail through sorrow and grief. Multitudes of trouble and evil decrees will be promulgated anew, each new evil coming with haste before the other has ended.'

    Here is proof that the murderers in Boston are extremists Muslims. Now do you believe me? It is in Russian, but I am having someone translate it. It is his Facebook with extremist Muslim beliefs. Check out it out for yourself. My Synagogue and I have been threatened and damage was done to my garage door.
