    WASHINGTON (AP) — The explosives used in the deadly Boston Marathon bombing were contained in 6-liter pressure cookers and hidden in black duffel bags on the ground, a person briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

    One of the explosives contained shards of metal and ball bearings, and another contained nails, the person said.

    A second person briefed on the investigation confirmed that at least one of the explosives was made out of a pressure cooker. Both spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.

    Two bombs blew up seconds apart Monday at the finish line of one of the world's most storied races, tearing off victims' limbs and leaving the streets spattered with blood and strewn with broken glass. Three people were killed, including an 8-year-old boy, and more than 170 were wounded.

    President Barack Obama said called the explosions a terrorist attack and said law enforcement and intelligence officials were trying to determine who was responsible. No one has claimed responsibility for the bombings.

    These types of pressure cooker explosives have been used in Afghanistan, India, Nepal and Pakistan, according to a July 2010 joint FBI and Homeland Security intelligence report. One of the three devices used in the May 2010 Times Square attempted bombing was a pressure cooker, the intelligence report said.

    "Placed carefully, such devices provide little or no indication of an impending attack," the report said.

    The Pakistani Taliban, which claimed responsibility for the 2010 attempt in Times Square, has denied any role in the Boston Marathon attack.

    Law enforcement has not yet determined what was used to set off the explosives. Typically, these bombs have an initiator, switch and explosive charge, according to a 2004 warning from the Homeland Security Department about these types of explosives.

    "We will go to the ends of the Earth to identify the subject or subjects who are responsible for this despicable crime, and we will do everything we can to bring them to justice," said Richard DesLauriers, FBI agent in charge in Boston.

    Investigators in Boston are combing surveillance tapes and pictures from Monday.

    Looking more and more like it could be a "disgruntled veteran of the armed forces, who had experience in handling explosives and IEDs in OIF/OEF"

    I sure hope not, but with this (like theyve been using the rice-cookers in OIF/OEF for..) they could argue that it is just another reason why military veterans are dangerous and should not be allowed to own firearms. which will tie into many other things.

    If it ends up being foreign, i.e. that Saudi student, who knows what will happen? Didnt they just get 'preffered fliers' or some such from us? something that not even the UK has with us?

    Tragic, all around.

FOR ALL WE KNOW ITSA MURDER PLOT A A DIVERSION ETC. I DONT SEE HIM DROPPING THE FLAG IN CJICAGO EVERY MONTH WHEN WE FIND ANOTHER 50 KIDS HAVE BEEN KILLED IN MURDERS.

    EVERY TIME THERE IS THIS CRAP THE FLAG GETS DROPPED . ALL WE KNOW RIGHT NOW IS A MURDER HAS TAKEN PLACE AN MANY PEOPLE WERE HURT .

    time for Washington to stand up to the bomb lobby like the NBA (national bomb association) and enact meaningful bomb control reforms. these assault pressure cookers have no use other than to kill/wound large numbers of people indiscriminately. Nobody needs one of these in their kitchen all you need is a microwave.

    I would also like to see a ban on high capacity duffel bags and backpacks as this tragedy may have been lessened or entirely prevented had the perpetrator only been able to carry a small amount of explosives in a fanny pack or two.

    Yeah pressure cookers were real big when I was out in Trashcanistan. Thats probably why it exploded directly into the crowd. The pressure cooker can be used to make a DF (Directional Fragmentation) charge like a claymore. Nasty stuff.

    I still expect the feds to "Never again allow this to happen" which means knee jerks-a-plenty, with a tie in to the "Strengthening" of mental background checks.

    I feel terrible for the killed and wounded though. None of our citizens deserve to have this happen to them.
