Dirty Bomb Threat in Boston?

Jan 19, 2005 5:05 pm US/Eastern

BOSTON (AP) -- The FBI has notified law enforcement agencies in Boston to be on the lookout for four people described as possible terror suspects who may be headed to the Boston area.

A federal law enforcement official speaking on condition of anonymity tells The Associated Press that the FBI's joint terrorism task force has not yet corroborated a tip that terror suspects may have entered the U-S through Mexico in recent days.

The official says the tip came from an unidentified individual and is similar to dozens received by law enforcement agencies each week.

A spokesman for Governor Romney says the governor will speak with reporters this afternoon in Washington DC and then return to Boston. Romney was in Washington to attend President Bush's inauguration.

FBI spokeswoman Gail Marcinkiewicz says the terror alert has NOT been raised in Boston.
