The couple who carried out Wednesday’s San Bernadino attack hoped to cause even more carnage with a remote-controlled explosive device left at the scene.
Authorities discovered three pipe bombs lashed together in a bag at the Inland Regional Center after Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, fled from the location in an SUV.
NBC News noted the remote car controller, apparently intended to set off the explosives, was similar to the one used to set off explosives in the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, which took the lives of three people and injured 264 others.
NBC News reports:
[T]he California attackers and the Tsarnaev brothers seemed to be using designs found in multiple issues of Inspire magazine, the on-line publication of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
Authorities are investigating how the San Bernardino attackers learned to construct their devices, and are looking for any possible accomplices who might have helped them obtain the large supply of ammunition, bombmaking materials and any weapons that may not have been directly purchased by the suspects.
