Tense Moments At Niagara Falls

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a police bomb unit that pulled over a car with Massachusetts license plates in the city of Niagara Falls, New York, found nothing dangerous inside.

Police officials say a state police bomb disposal team used a robot to remove several items from the car Friday after it had been stopped earlier in the morning by officers checking out a report of a suspicious vehicle with Massachusetts plates.

Officials say two Massachusetts were released after being questioned and their personal items were returned. They were visiting friends in the area during the intense manhunt for one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.
