Three more suspects have been taken into custody in the Boston Marathon bombings, city police said in a surprising development Wednesday.
The Boston Police made the announcement in a tweet this morning.
Offering no details, they said more would soon follow. Police spokeswoman Cheryl Fiandaca confirmed the tweet but referred all questions to the FBI.
Three people were killed and more than 260 injured on April 15.
Suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev died in a gunfight with police three days later. His brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was captured and is in a hospital prison.
It was widely believed that the brothers acted alone in plotting and carrying out the terrorist attack, so the basis for the new arrests should be very interesting.

UPDATE: Prosecutors say Dias Kadyrbayev, 19, and Azamat Tazbayakov, 19, tried to conceal and destroy a laptop and fireworks belonging to Tsarnaev.
