Reports of breakthrough in the Boston Marathon bombings should be treated with great caution. The FBI have seen CCTV from shop and one man is of interest.

The FBI have not identified this man and him leaving something on the ground makes him like - thousands of spectators - a man with a bag.

There is video taken from CCTV cameras at the Lord & Taylor shop apparently of a man leaving a bag at the scene of the second explosion. The FBI apparently consider video shot by a Boston TV station as significant. But CCTV from a department store is key new evidence.

John Kerry emotional as he comments on bombings

US Secretary of State John Kerry became emotional today as he told congress that a friend's granddaughter is at risk of losing both of her legs following the Boston bombings:

He also told members: "It's impossible for me to express my sadness and my anger...over those terrible events. It's hard to believe a Patriots' Day holiday, which is normally a time of festivities, turned into bloody mayhem."

He added: "But we're going to find out who did this.The police work being done is extraordinary. The FBI is remarkable. There's a great deal of forensic evidence. We're hopeful that we can bring people to justice."
