Boston - The Saudi embassy in Washington has stated that two of its nationals injured in the Boston marathon bombing have been cleared of suspicion.
Naharnet reported embassy spokesman Nail al-Jubeir said U.S. authorities told the embassy "that no Saudi national was a suspect in the Boston Marathon attack and that the Saudi national in question was a witness, not a suspect."
A 20-year-old Saudi man injured in the attack had been been placed under guard at the hospital but was not under detention. The embassy issued a second statement ABC News reported, saying a Saudi woman had suffered injuries from glass fragments.
The Saudi Gazette reported that police denied an earlier report by the New York Post that an injured Saudi student may have been a suspect.
Saudi King Abdullah has condemned the Boston attack and sent condolences.
