BBC News with Julie Candler
The Boston police commissioner says he believes the two men suspected of bombing the city's marathon were planning more attacks. One of the brothers, Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a gun fight with the police during a big manhunt, which ended with the capture of the other, Dzhokhar. Ed Davis said after the gunfight, the police discovered the resources to stike the other targets.
"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."
The injured brother is being treated at a hospital in Boston which described his condition as serious. Some reports suggest his injuries are so severe he may never be able to speak. Meanwhile the family of the two brothers have told the BBC, that the elder brother was radicalize while he was in the United States.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev visited the Russian Republic of Dagestan last year to see his family who'd moved there from Chechenya.Tamerlan's aunt said that it was clear from long discussion he had with her husband, that he already converted to an extreme version of Islam. Daniel Sandford reports.
Patimat Suleimanova cried several times during the interview, a sign of how much the Boston bombings have affected the family of the men accused of carrying it out. She told me that when the elder brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev visited Dagestan for six months last year, he had only seen his family. She insisted he could not have met any of the violent insurgence who plagued this part of Russia. She said he clearly become very religious while living in America and some times argued with his family about the best form of Islam.
采访中Patimat Suleimanova哭了几次，由此可见波士顿爆炸案对袭击嫌犯家人的影响。她告诉我们Tamerlan Tsarnaev去年到达吉斯坦自己家中做客6个月的情景，他去只是为了见家人。她坚持表示Tamerlan没有与在俄罗斯作乱的暴力叛徒会面，她说他在美国生活时变得更有宗教性，有时与家人争辩伊斯兰的最佳形式。
Syrian opposition per sources say a government offence on the town near Damascus has left many people dead. The sources say the attack on the town of Jdaidet al-Fadl lasted five days with at least 80 people killed. Sebastian Usher reports.
Both government and rebel sources confirmed that Syrian forces had mounted a major offence against Jdaidet al-Fadl in the past few days. Both sides also say the government forces have won the battle for now, but that's all they agree on. The state news agency says simply that the army inflicted heavy losses upon terrorists in the town, its usual description of all rebel fighters. But opposition's sources say women and children were killed, too. One source says dozens were killed over several days, many of them fighters. But another source, the Local Coordination Committees paints an even worse picture, claiming that the Syrian forces carried out a massacre after retaking the town.
The authorities in Nigeria say they've seized a ship carrying 2,500 tons of fuel refined illegally from oil stolen in the Niger Delta.
