Sources told CBS station WBZ-TV that a man on the bus was talking on a cell phone in what sounded like Arabic and English when a woman reportedly heard him say something about “a bomb is on the bus.”

STORY HERE: Man surrenders after 10-hour bus siege
Not believed to be a terrorist event. (Isn’t that what they always say initially?)
AP is reporting No details about the passenger were immediately released, and the bus remained parked in downtown Portsmouth being examined by the FBI and a bomb squad. The man could be a foreign national, as agents from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement were on the scene and there were reports an interpreter was needed to speak to him.
UPDATED May 6, 11:21PM VIDEO: Apparently the police have captured the suspect. No information about his name or motive has been released yet. Will update later if anything more is available.
