(NEWSER) – The FBI has released images of the remains of a "pressure cooker" bomb used in the Boston marathon attack and the backpack it was hidden inside, ABC reports. The second bomb was also hidden in a backpack, but it's not clear whether it was also made from a pressure cooker, the FBI says. Investigators say the bombs—packed with BBs, nails and pellets to maximize shrapnel injuries—may have cost less than $100 to build and were made from ingredients so ordinary that tracing them may be impossible, reports the Washington Post.
