Report: Authorities ID suspect as Saudi national in marathon bombings, under guard at Boston hospital (Updated)Topics:
According to the NY Post, investigators have a suspect -- a Saudi Arabian national -- in the horrific Boston Marathon bombings. Law enforcement sources said the 20-year-old suspect was under guard at an undisclosed Boston hospital.
To be a bit more accurate, it is not yet determined (more accurately - unconfirmed), for certain, that he is a 'suspect' or a 'victim.'
However, the police are treating him as a suspect (don't tell CNN and Wolf Blitzer, they already pinned this on Right-wingers, while the NYTs is blaming the GOP), and according to the Post, 12 are dead, and at least 50 more injured ... Massachusetts General Hospital was treating 10 people with amputated limbs and all operating rooms were on hold. (Update - Fox and CNN are reporting 3 people dead, not 12)
Here's video of the explosions as they happened:
