BOSTON (Reuters) – A Saudi Arabian national who was injured in the bombing attack on last year’s Boston Marathon has filed a defamation lawsuit against television commentator Glenn Beck for publicly accusing him of being the “money man” behind the attacks.
Beck, a conservative television and radio personality, repeatedly criticized the federal investigation into the attacks that killed three people and injured 264, and in May 2013 claimed that Abdulrahman Alharbi had financed the attacks.
