Sure they have waffles, chocolates and Tintin but really, what else is there?

It's quite an extreme way to win a war with property developers who want to build a shopping centre, but you have to admire this flat owner’s ice-cold nerve.

He added: “This happened on Patriots’ Day, it is also the day Americans are supposed to have their taxes in, and Boston is quite a symbolic city. These are all little indicators.”
Mr Barrett, who is also a former member of a UN task force for promoting global counter-terrorism strategy, said behind the scenes a “very intense'' investigation will be unfolding.
