A barefoot man screaming 'Boston Strong' was reportedly arrested by police after two unattended backpacks were found at the Boston Marathon finish line on the anniversary of the bombings.


The area near the finish line was evacuated after the backpacks, of which one was carried by a barefoot man wearing a long black veil, were spotted there.

According to CBS News, the man, who was identified as 25-year-old Kayvon Edson, said that he had a rice cooker in his bag when he was stopped by the police, who found that on searching that the cooker was full of confetti.

A police spokesman said that the backpacks were discovered in the evening and were detonated by a bomb squad.
