Transcript for Authorities Investigate Bombing Suspects' Global Connections
ABC's Martha Raddatz now on the developing information about the suspects international connections and what we're learning at this hour and -- We believe that these two men reported to be Brothers. Are in fact from overseas as George mentioned possibly from Chechnya. Tell us what we know with this point what we've been able to confirm.
