BOSTON BOMB SUSPECT-PKG

(--- INSERT PKG ---)

(nats)

POLICE CLEARED OUT OF BETH ISRAEL MEDICAL CENTER OVERNIGHT..

AS MARATHON BOMBING SUSPECT JO-HAR SUR-NIE-EV,

(nats/ chopper)

WAS MOVED TO THIS FEDERAL PRISON MEDICAL FACILITY IN DEVENS... about 40-miles outside of Boston...

(nats/ chopper)

TODAY, THE SEARCH FOR EVIDENCE CONTINUED AT THE SITE WHERE HE WAS CAPTURED..

AND OFFICIALS HAVE NOW CONFIRMED THAT AT LEAST 7 ADDITIONAL EXPLOSIVES WERE FOUND IN A SEARCH OF HIS OLDER BROTHER TAMERLAN'S APARTMENT..

ACCORDING TO A REPORT PREPARED BY THE FBI.. AND OBTAINED BY NBC NEWS.. THE BOMBS USED IN THE ATTACK WERE MADE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS OUTLINED IN TWO ISSUES OF THE AL QAEDA ON-LINE MAGAZINE INSPIRE..

THE REPORT DESCRIBES THE BOMBS AS -QUOTE- "LOW EXPLOSIVES.. CONSISTENT WITH COMMERCIAL FIREWORKS."

CONFIRMS THE USE OF NAILS AND BB'S AS FRAGMENT MATERIAL..

AND SAYS THE RECOVERY OF CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTS IN ONE OF THE SUSPECTS ROOMS, SUGGESTS BULB FILIMENTS MAY HAVE BEEN PART OF THE FUSE THAT ACTIVATED THE DEVICES.

THE FBI ANALYSIS ALSO INDICATES BUILDING THE BOMBS REQUIRED A LEVEL A SKILL BEYOND JUST READING INSTRUCTIONS ON-LINE.. AND SOME NOW WONDER IF THE SAR-NIE-EV BROTHERS HAD OUTSIDE HELP..

(S/ Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) / House Homeland Security Committee Chairman )

"the way they were professionally handled by the two indicates to me that they were trained by somebody and so the question is, where are the trainers?"

BUT THE FORMER DIRECTOR OF THE U-S NATIONAL COUNTER TERRORISM CENTER SAYS NONE OF THE CURRENT EVIDENCE POINTS TO OUTSIDE INVOLVEMENT IN THE BOSTON ATTACK.

(S/ Michael Leiter / NBC Terrorism Expert )

"you still have to assume there might be but I haven't seen that. What I'm sure we'll see is links on the internet or maybe in person which led to the radicalization but not the execution of this plot."

A PLOT THAT IS DEFINED IN MUCH MORE PERSONAL TERMS HERE -FOUR KILLED.. MORE THAN 260 INJURED- ALONG A STREET STILL STRUGGLING TO COME TO TERMS WITH WHAT HAPPENED..

(--- REPORTER STANDUP ---)

AND A BIG PART OF THIS RECOVERY CONTINUES TO BE THIS GROWING MEMORIAL.
