Former Massachusetts Senator Brown eyeing run in New Hampshire

BOSTON (Reuters) – Former Massachusetts U.S. Senator Scott Brown, who has been flirting with running for a New Hampshire Senate seat since moving north last year, will step into the spotlight on Friday when he addresses a conservative group in that New England state.

Security push at Boston Marathon bomb anniversary, but risks remain

BOSTON (Reuters) – Even as police prepare for a massive presence at Boston’s first marathon since the 2013 bombing attack that killed three people and injured 264, officials acknowledge the sheer scale of the event poses inevitable security risks.

More than 3,500 officers will be stationed along the 26.2 mile course starting in suburban Hopkinton, Massachusetts, and ending among throngs of spectators at the bars and restaurants of Boylston Street, where two homemade pressure-cooker bombs ripped through the crowd last year.

Attorneys for accused Boston bomber’s friends seeking more records

BOSTON (Reuters) – Attorneys for three college friends of the accused Boston Marathon bomber who are charged with helping cover up evidence of the crime on Monday asked for more records related to their arrests.

Defense attorneys for the friends said they needed notes of any statements they made before being advised of their right not to speak to police. A large number of police swarmed the apartment south of Boston shared by two of the men, both Kazakh exchange students, during a massive April 19 manhunt for bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
