BOSTON — In the first major break in the hunt for the Boston Marathon bomber, FBI personnel found security video clips Wednesday that showed a man they believe may have played a role in planting the explosives that killed three people and injured more than 170 on Monday.
The videos also showed at least a handful of others whom the authorities want to question, either because of what they appear to be doing in the video or their proximity to the blasts, according to a senior law enforcement official.
