How many bombs were planted?
Authorities are destroying five other packages found on the streets of Boston and there is reason to think some of them were explosive devices. Officials currently believe the threat is confined to Boston, and while there is not yet a suspect in custody, authorities say some people are being questioned including a young person who was in the U.S. on a student visa. NBC’s Pete Williams reports.

Many more at scene of first shootout (4/22 article):

“We have reason to believe, based upon the evidence that was found at that scene — the explosions, the explosive ordnance that was unexploded and the firepower that they had — that they were going to attack other individuals. That’s my belief at this point.” Davis told CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

On “Fox News Sunday,” he said authorities cannot be positive there are not more explosives somewhere that have not been found. But the people of Boston are safe, he insisted.

7 IEDs located:

From @NBCNews: Seven (7) IEDs have been recovered in the searches so far, some in Watertown, some at the house in Cambridge.

But by all means - they are no big deal. The first two just killed 3 people and seriously injured 200 more.   What a bunch of babies.
