  • Three students arrested in Boston bombing case face charges, including lying to police

    Three additional suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing have been taken into custody, Boston police said Wednesday.

    A Department of Homeland security source with first-hand knowledge of the investigation, said two of them are students from New Bedford, Massachusetts. They have been arrested on charges of making false statements to investigators and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

    A third student had been arrested who is a U.S. citizen, the source said.

    Boston police added via Twitter, "Please be advised there is no threat to the public."

    Federal agents already have accused two brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, of carrying out the attack. Tamerlan died after a shootout with police, and Dzhokhar is in custody.

    The news follows more than two weeks of frantic investigation after the April 15 attack. Two bombs exploded in the crowd gathered near the finish line of the marathon, killing three people and wounding more than 260.
