    DC Partner Clark Kent Ervin told CNBC on April 17, 2013, that bombs used in the Boston terrorist attack were crude devices, but added: “The simultaneity of the attacks, the iconic nature of the venue ... the fact that lots of people were gathered there. The fact that the bombs were apparently designed to maim people. All of this suggests to me an al Qaeda-inspired attack.” “The pressure cookers are commonly used throughout South Asia, the Middle East, North Africa,” he continued. “So that's a further indication to me this is the kind of suspect we might be looking at now.” Although it may have been inspired by al Qaeda, he concluded: “My bet is we'll find out a single individual is responsible for this.”
