A Saudi national in the country on a student visa was identified as a person of interest in the early stages of the investigation. Fox News' Catherine Herridge now reports that the man is cooperating fully and consented to a search of his apartment in Revere, Mass. She said that right now, authorities see his cooperation as an indication that he is not of significant value to the investigation of yesterday's terror attack on the Boston Marathon.
Below is Reuters' transcript of President Obama's remarks from the White House this morning on the terror attack in Boston:
President Obama spoke from the White House just moments ago on yesterday's terror attack on the Boston Marathon. He said investigators still do not know who carried out the bombings or what the motive was for the "cowardly and heinous act."
President Barack Obama addressed the nation on Monday night, reacting to bombings that took place earlier in the day near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
