Authorities in Boston have made “significant progress” in the Boston Marathon bombing investigation, but contrary to conflicting reports, no arrests have been yet.
According to CNN, the FBI has confirmed in a statement that no arrests have been made. A Boston law enforcement official told CNN, “We got him,” but would not clarify whether that means a suspect has been identified or arrested.
The twin bombs exploded 12 seconds apart near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three people, including an 8-year-old boy, and wounding about 180 others. One of the bombs was contained in a pressure cooker hidden inside a backpack. The makeshift bomb also had fragments that may have included nails, BBs and ball bearings.
