Report: Boston bombers planned Times Square attack
BOSTON — (CNN) The surviving suspect in the Boston bombings has indicated that he and his brother planned to detonate explosives in New York City’s Times Square, a New York city official told CNN Thursday.
A senior law enforcement official also told CNN that the suspect indicated there had been a plan to bomb Times Square.
New York City police commissioner Ray Kelly had different information a day earlier. On Wednesday, he said some information collected from the suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, indicated that he and his brother may have planned to go to New York to “party.”
