Three additional arrests were made in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings on Wednesday morning.

While little is known about the people who were apprehended, the Boston Globe is reporting that all three are college students. The Boston police’s official Twitter account reported 20 minutes ago that “additional suspects were taken into custody.”

To date, only two people had been accused of organizing and taking part in the Boston Marathon bombings that occurred on April 15. One of them, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed in an altercation with police; Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was eventually captured and charged with using a weapon of mass destruction and malicious destruction of property resulting in death.

This story will be updated as additional information comes in.
