by - Former International Editor

Video and photographs taken at the scene have led investigators to a number of 'people of interest' but in particular one young man wearing a baseball cap and seen carrying a bag and then dropping it off at the site of one of the explosions.

He is also seen talking on a mobile phone and investigators are now tracing those phone records to see if they can identify him.

They are also using computer facial recognition technology to see if his face matches any face on criminal records.

They are scouring rooftops, scouring parks we saw yesterday an inch by inch, painstaking surge of a huge crime scene around around.

But they are talking about a significant breakthrough.

People in this city still on edge still hurting.

"That's exactly what we saw from the people of Boston and from all of those who rushed to aid the victims, especially the police officers and fire fighters, the first responders, our men and women in uniform. That is the spirit of Boston, but that is also the spirit of this country."
