WASHINGTON (AP) - A new congressional report on the federal investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings includes few previously unknown details of the case.

The report, released Wednesday, speculates without any evidence that bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev (TAM’-ehr-luhn tsahr-NEYE’-ehv) might have met with militants overseas months before the explosions and says it’s reasonable to assume he was inspired by the activity and ideology of foreign terror groups.

It also acknowledges that the facts as known about his travel don’t indicate any connection between the bombings and any outside terror network.

Much of the congressional report cites contemporaneous news articles for facts in the case, including those by The Associated Press.

Twin bombs placed near the finish line of last year’s marathon killed three people and wounded more than 260.
