  • Boston attack: Swath of city on lockdown as police scour for additional bombs

    The Christian Science Monitor - 04/15/2013

    “What we saw today was a relatively small-scale set of explosions,” says Stephen Flynn, co-director of the George J. Kostas Research Institute for Homeland Security at Northeastern University, in Boston.

    “The challenge with these smaller-scale attacks is that they are much harder to detect in the early stages – precisely because they don’t require much sophistication, planning, or leadership, funding, or financing,” he adds.
