Now that we know that the bombs used in the Boston Marathon tragedy may have been pressure cookers hidden in backpacks, the Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano is stating that the explosions that ended up killing 3 people and injuring 176 were not part of a broader plot.
The Boston Marathon tragedy has left many in distress, 176 wounded and 3 dead, and with more details beginning to unravel, investigators now think that the bombs were 6-liter pressure cookers hidden in backpacks.
According to reports, one of the bombs contained metal and ball bearings, while another was jam packed with nails.
Law enforcement officials are saying that the explosives were dubbed as low, which means they traveled under 3,300 feet per second and were not strong enough to create a blast wave, but were strong enough to blast the ammo from long distance.
The injuries from the Boston Marathon tragedy just climbed to 176, but the casualties stayed at 3.
Federal authorities are currently searching for a suspect, and although some think a young Saudi Arabian man who is currently in the U.S. on a student visa may be the brainchild behind this tragic event, they can't blame him for the bombings because authorities didn't find anything that links back to the event in his Revere, Massachusetts apartment.
The aftermath of the Boston Marathon tragedy is far from pretty.
Reports are now confirming a total of 3 people dead, which includes an 8-year-old boy, and over 150 people hospitalized with at least 17 in critical condition and 41 in serious condition. At least eight of the wounded individuals are children.
Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Albert Pendleton, who was helping out at the race's medical tent said that the tragedy was "basically like the bomb took out he legs of everybody. It was horrific," and considering that ball bearings were removed from wounded patients, a terrorism export is suggesting that the bombs were created to explode before they reached their target.
At least 2 deaths and dozens of injuries have been reported after two explosions went off at the Boston Marathon, and now we're learning that not only was there a third explosion five miles away from the marathon, but New Kids on the Block star Joey McIntyre missed the blasts by five minutes!!
This is sooooo not helping his attempt at not looking like a tool.
We told you about Justin Bieber's deposition last week and how it got fiery when Selena Gomez was brought up, but we had no idea it was like THIS!
Not only did the Biebs go wild when she was mentioned, but he was pretty much acting like a little brat the whole time. While he fidgeted around and made many a faces at the opposing lawyer and the camera, he also refused to answer many questions and when he did, it was usually in a smartass way.
Or maybe we should say, it was an attempt at being a smartass because it's kind of hard to succeed at that when you don't know the difference between instrumental and detrimental.
Want to know what we mean by that??? Ch-ch-check out some highlights from the deposition…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
