Two Arabic-speaking men were removed from a US flight in the hours following a deadly bombing at the Boston Marathon, it was reported.

According to, the American Airlines flight from Boston Logan Airport to Chicago was about to take off, before other passengers raised concerns over the two men. Some on board were believed to have taken part in the marathon on Monday.

The two men, who were not sitting together, were then removed from the plane by staff, the report said.

Investigators yesterday began searching for those responsible for planting two bombs at the marathon’s finish line that killed three people and wounded more than 100 in the worst terror attack on US soil since September 11, 2001.
