FBI Investigating "Dirty Bomb" Threat in Boston

Wednesday, January 19, 2005

The FBI said that it was investigating a report of a "dirty bomb" threat in Boston, MA.
Federal teams equipped with radiological sensors
were looking for the "dirty bomb" throughout
Boston.
Local police said that they have no information
about federal activities.

Boston FBI spokeswoman, Gail Marcinkiewicz said
that the "evidence" we have has not been
corroborated, and that we have shared our
information with our law enforcement partners,
and we are all working aggressively to resolve it."

According to an ABC News report, broadcast on WBZ
Radio in Boston, the San Diego FBI office notified
the FBI office in Boston that terrorists may be
trying to detonate a dirty bomb in the city.

Gail Marcinkiewicz declined to reveal the source of the information, and said that she would not speculate on why this particular report had generated so much media interest.

to be on the lookout for four Chinese nationals

of the two men and two women they were looking for.
The FBI also said that none of the names had been
on previous terrorist watch lists.

Governor Mitt Romney, of Massachusetts said that
the state's threat level would not be raised, but
more people would be on duty in the state's emergency management bunker outside Boston.

told the media that the FBI's Joint Terrorism
Task Force that the suspects may have entered
into the U.S. through Mexico.

Brian Roehrkasse, of the Homeland Security Department said the agency was working with the FBI.
