DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) - Police say a pressure cooker left in a suburban Detroit hotel bathroom that prompted a three-hour evacuation had food inside and posed no threat.

Dearborn police Lt. Douglas Topolski told The Associated Press Tuesday a guest likely used the appliance to bring food to a family event Sunday in the 770-room Adoba Hotel. He says it "doesn't appear that there was a very nefarious intent."

Pressure cookers have gotten attention after two were used in the Boston Marathon bombings.

This month, a Saudi man was arrested at Detroit Metropolitan Airport on charges of lying about why he was traveling with one. The man says he brought it for his nephew, who told AP he wanted it to cook lamb.

Topolski says the cooker at the hotel had a broken handle.

WASHINGTON (AP) - A person briefed on the Boston Marathon investigation says the explosives were in 6-liter pressure cookers and placed in black duffel bags.

The person says the explosives were placed on the ground and contained shards of metal, nails and ball bearings. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.

The person says law enforcement officials have some of the bomb components but did not yet know what was used to set off the explosives.

President Barack Obama said Tuesday the bombings were an act of terrorism but investigators do not know if they were carried out by an international or domestic organization, or perhaps by a "malevolent individual."
