BOSTON (CBS) – An intelligence report issued five days before the Boston Marathon warned Boston police that extremists might use “small scale bombings” to attack spectators and runners, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.
The 18-page report written by the Boston Regional Intelligence Center was reportedly dated April 10. The paper cited two officials who read part of the document to a Washington Bureau reporter for the Times.
The analysis also reportedly identified the finish line on Boylston Street as an ‘area of increased vulnerability.’
