Washington - Authorities investigating the deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon have recovered a piece of circuit board that they believe was part of one of the explosive devices, and also found the lid of a pressure cooker that apparently was catapulted onto the roof of a nearby building.

A law enforcement official briefed on the investigation confirmed to AP on Wednesday that authorities have recovered what they believe are some of the pieces of the explosive devices.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because this person was not authorised to publicly discuss evidence in the continuing investigation.

A person close to the investigation previously told AP the bombs consisted of explosives put in 6l pressure cookers, one with shards of metal and ball bearings, the other with nails.
