Hey y’all I finally got some sleep and woke up to this. Can y’all keep me updated while I try to get everyone’s posts from the last 10 hours or so moderated?
This is what CNN is reporting now:
Boston (CNN) — The suspects involved in the Boston Marathon bombings were brothers from the Russian Caucasus who’d lived in the United States for several years, though one noted on a social media website that he didn’t “have a single American friend.”
The elder brother, identified by several sources as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, studied engineering at Bunker Hill Community College but had taken off a year to train as a boxer.
A posting on a social media website under his name included the comment: “I don’t have a single American friend. I don’t understand them.”
He died at a hospital overnight after a gun battle with police, authorities said. A source briefed on the investigation said Tsarnaev was wearing explosives and an explosive trigger when his body was recovered.
My thoughts are with all of you in Boston.
