This one last night in far Southwest Austin, the fourth, was very Palestinian. It was apparently packed with nails which peppered the leg of at least one of two seriously injured young men.
The bomber would seem to live in South Austin as that’s near where most of the blasts have occurred. Still miles away from the rancho. But we’ll now start watching for suspicious packages and discarded backpacks.
UPDATE: Police chief says this one was a roadside bomb with possibly a trip-wire that got two young men on bicycles. That will put the fear in Austin’s plethora of bicyclists.
MORE: A security expert with Stratfor says the bomber seems to be trying to encircle the city, having struck in Northeast, East, Southeast and now Southwest. Which could mean that West or Northwest are next. Close to the rancho.
