The FBI was last night hunting a 12-strong terrorist sleeper cell linked to the Boston marathon bomb brothers.
Police believe Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were specially trained to carry out the devastating attack.
More than 1,000 FBI agents were last night working to track down the cell and arrested a man and two women 60 miles from Boston in the hours before Dzhokhars dramatic capture after a bloody shootout on Friday.
A source close to the investigation said: We have no doubt the brothers were not acting alone. The devices used to detonate the two bombs were highly sophisticated and not the kind of thing people learn from Google.
They were too advanced. Someone gave the brothers the skills and it is now our job to find out just who they were. Agents think the sleeper cell has up to a dozen members and has been waiting several years for their day to come.

Anybody with an IQ above 90 could have done the same thing.
This was hardly a technical accomplishment.
The "training" was the brain washing to go out and jihad.
The American news media is still trying to pin this on conservatives and covers for Islam which is the cause of the bombings
It is called Islam
I blame it on the bossa nova.
No doubt they were celebrating like hell after the election.
I hope that Dzhokhar wakes up soon and starts talking. My guess is this will be how he avoids the death penalty...
If he talks he will be safest in prison.
The cell, in all likelihood, is long gone and deep underground. They probably went their separate ways weeks or months ago. The two brothers were merely the trained, financed and equipped designated hitters for the cell- cutouts and martyrs.
Woot! Way to go FBI guys! Don’t quit! Get them all.
Might I suggest they try Brigham and Womens Hospital?
I take it you are unfamiliar with the defintion of the word “sarcasm?”
Not only Skills big fella just try to accomplish this deed of terror as a student for one let alone married with a 3 yr old daughter.
Diive a Mercedes and be a big shot!
Money follow the money!
Not all of us. Some are very conservative ccw holding solid citizens who hate what is being done to our beautiful state...
Wait.....Nappy Napalitano already said this bombing was an isolated incident. This story has to be false. /SARC
Beslen type of attack next. They are pissed and they want to hurt us.
Again Proven: You have to go outside the US to get serious reporting on the US (in this case, London’s Daily Mirror). The reporters here, and especially the editors, are all cowed by the Democrats.
but the news media is giving what for the motive , tax day?
above all , the news media want to say that Obama couldn't have let a terrorist act happen . but it did happen and the media will cover it up
I asked some average low info voter today what he thought the motive was and he said “ bored teenagers” I guess that's one of the messages the media is implanting in people's minds
Ten bucks says that all 12 are located within a half mile of Harvard Square.
