(MyFoxBoston.com) – A report in the Daily Mail claims the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia warned the U.S. in writing about Boston Marathon Bomber No. 1 Tamerlan Tsarnaev and a planned explosive attack on a major U.S. city.
The Saudi official also said Tamerlan was denied an entry visa into Saudi Arabia when he was trying to make a pilgrimage to Mecca in 2011 because he was seen as a potential jihadis.
The White House and Department of Homeland Security are denying that report, but are launching an internal review to find out if intelligence information was properly shared.
In Boston, colleges and universities have decided to step up security at commencement ceremonies in the upcoming weeks in light of the bombings. This is not an indication of any increased threat, just a precaution.
