The Boston Herald newspaper on Wednesday quoted an unidentified source as saying authorities in Massachusetts had identified five Arab men as suspects in Tuesday's attack and had seized a rental car containing Arabic-language flight training manuals at Boston's Logan International Airport. Two of the men were brothers whose passports were traced to the UAE, the unidentified source told the Herald. One of the men was a trained pilot, the paper reported on its Web site. "We are aware of these press reports and they are being addressed by the appropriate authorities in the UAE and the U.S.," the U.S. embassy spokesperson said. "We would caution against drawing any premature conclusions during what is an extremely complex and difficult investigation that is now in its very early stages," the spokesperson added.

The Boston Herald said investigators suspected the two brothers were aboard hijacked United Airlines flight 175, which pilot union officials said was one of two aircraft that hit the World Trade Centre. Another hijacked plane crashed into the Pentagon just outside Washington.
