FBI Adds 10 Names to List in Boston Threat

By CURT ANDERSON, Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - The FBI (news - web sites) on Thursday added the names of 10 Chinese to the list of those being sought for questioning about a possible terror plot targeting Boston.
Two law enforcement officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation, said the names were part of the same anonymous tip that led authorities on Wednesday to announce that they are seeking to question four other Chinese and two Iraqis.
The officials said the tip remains uncorroborated and there is no credible evidence that such a plot exists.
It was unclear why all the names were not announced at the same time. The officials said there was no new information that led to the addition of the 10 names.
A third federal law enforcement official in Washington, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said the tip was received Wednesday by the California Highway Patrol. The tipster claimed the four Chinese two men and two women entered the United States from Mexico and were awaiting a shipment of "nuclear oxide" that would follow them to Boston.
The official said the nuclear oxide could be a reference to material used to make a "dirty bomb" that would spew radiation over a wide area.

What happened to the "two Iraqis"?
They're having trouble keeping the story straight.
Something's up though or there wouldn't be BOLO's.
Interesting. I wonder if we will get photos of the other Chinese guys?
someone posted a thread about a similar story from a message from a yahoo board that had this kind of info last night. I can't find it now. I'll look further.
Dumb question: What is a BOLO?
Chinese jokesters,,,not very bright if you ask me.
They've been slaughtering Christians in China, too.
In fact, it happened not too long ago.
Where are they from, Beijing University?
BOLO = Be On LOokout or something similar. It's law enforcement jargon for "watch for these guys".
Be On the LookOut.
BOLO = Be On the Look Out.
See? We didn't think your question was dumb!
I was playing the straight man. That's exactly what I think.
