The FBI is investigating “persons of interest” in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings, the Washington Post reports.

“There are persons of interest in the United States,” Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, the top Democrat on the committee, told ABC News. “We’re looking at phone calls before and after the bombing, this type of investigation.”

Agents also are trying to determine whether one either of the bombing suspects received training.

“I think, given the level of sophistication of this device, the fact that the pressure cooker is a signature device that goes back to Pakistan, Afghanistan, leads me to believe . . . that there was a trainer,” House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R., Texas) said. “And the question is, where is that trainer or trainers?”
