I ran the 2001 and 2002 marathons. The sidewalks are packed 5 rows deep on Boylston. It's a madhouse every year.

So my guess it was RCIEDs initiated by cell phone. Ball bearings aren't usually in RCIED. Command wire or victim operated IEDs like pressure plates usually have ball bearings.

The Globe is reporting multiple IEDs that lined a 200 foot portion of the north side of Boylston. At least 4 x IED reported.

The level of sophistication bears the hallmarks of a skilled IED cell. I don't think this is some rogue.
