The Saudi national in question of the Boston Marathon terror blasts that killed three and left many injured has a name now, and has been identified as Abdulrahman Ali Alharbi.


Many still can’t believe yesterday’s terrorist happenings that have shocked people all over the world and while many are grieving the lives lost; actions need to be taken in order to find the vicious criminals who are to blame.


Within two hours of the blasts Boston Police had in their power a Saudi National who was seeing acting suspicious and was taken to the hospital.

After Cops had looked through every corner of Abdulrahman Ali Alharbi’s apartment following the terrible attack at the Boston Marathon it’s been declared he is a witness and not a suspect.

Roommate and friends say he’s shy and quiet. But who is really this guy and how did he get wind up in this whole mess??

Abdulrahman Ali Alharbi, 22 who shares an apartment with a roommate on a fifth floor building in Revere, Mass is just a regular Muslim guy who seems to have been in the wrong place at the wrong time when the two bombs exploded Monday afternoon near the finish line of the event that draws runners from around the globe.


I guess you could say his genes played him a prank this time. It’s been reported this shy guy is in the U.S on a scholarship to study at the New England School of English and possess a student visa.


Just as seen  on his FB profile

Studied English at NESE – The New England School of English


His buddy and roommate, Mohammud Hassan Bada, 20 was grilled for 5 hours by the police and had only to say nice things about the guy:

“He is sweet and kind and a good person,”  “I didn’t see something on him like (a bomb).”

Another Classmate matched Bada’s story saying:

“He is a geek,” “He likes to study a lot. … He’s a quiet person, doesn’t like to go out a lot.”

On his room investigators find nothing else but English vocabulary cards taped on the walls so no clue this Alharbi would make them think otherwise. On the pictures above we can see him holding a gun and as funny a joke it might be for some nowadays people need to be more careful on what they put up on the web. I don’t think he would like to be taken for a suspect again..right? Judging from his Facebook pictures he enjoys going to themed parks and photography.

Alharbi who is still at the hospital suffered serious  shrapnel injuries at the explosion so we hope this whole thing ends for him soon.
