Were bombers also planning to attack New York?

The two brothers suspected of planting deadly bombs at the Boston marathon told a man whose car they hijacked that they planned to go to New York, it has emerged.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his younger brother Dzhokhar, 19, seized a Mercedes-Benz sport utility vehicle and held the driver hostage as they sought to flee from police late on Thursday.
They told the driver that they planned to head to New York, a senior official revealed, but it is not clear if they told the man what they intended to do there, the New York Times reported.
The latest detail emerged as police confirmed the brothers likely planned more attacks, and suggests they could have wrought even greater devastation on the U.S. after being undetected by the FBI.
