Boston Marathon Bombing

Tsarnaev Brother Discussed Setting Off Bombs in New York

According to law enforcement officials


(Reuters)—Bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother discussed setting off bombs in New York after attacking the Boston Marathon but their plan fell apart when they became embroiled in a shootout with police, law enforcement sources said.

One source said the Tsarnaev brothers' original intent when they hijacked a car and its driver in Boston last Thursday night was to drive to New York with seven bombs to set them off.
