Boston bombs: Tsarnaev brothers ‘planned more attacks’

The brothers suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon were probably planning further attacks, the city’s police commissioner has said.
 
Ed Davis told CBS News that Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev had been carrying homemade bombs and grenades which they threw at police when cornered.
 
A top US interrogation group is waiting to question Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who is in a serious condition in hospital.His elder brother died during a gunfight with police on Friday.
 
Two women and an eight-year-old boy were killed in Monday’s blasts, close to the finish line of the marathon.A police officer was killed and a transport officer seriously wounded during the massive 24-hour manhunt launched on Thursday to track down the brothers.
 
The pair clashed with police on Thursday night, in the shoot-out which killed the elder brother.Speaking to CBS’s Face the Nation, Mr Davis said: “We have reason to believe, based upon the evidence that was found at that scene – the explosions, the explosive ordinance that was unexploded and the firepower that they had – that they were going to attack other individuals.”
 
“That’s my personal belief at this time.”He said more than 250 rounds of expended ammunition were found at the scene, and that the ground was “littered with unexploded improvised explosive devices that we had to point out to the arriving offers”.
