Authorities Disarm Tripwire

Although the effort to clear out Colorado shooting suspect James Holmes’ explosive-rigged apartment is not yet over, bomb-disposal experts just scored a key victory: disarming a tripwire linked to a major explosive device. The booby trap was set up to kill anyone who came in through the door, Sgt. Cassidee Carlson told the Associated Press. According to witnesses, two explosions rang out while authorities were inside, but no one was hurt. “This is some serious stuff our team is dealing with,” Carlson said. “There is no timeline, there is no end time. We don’t need to rush anything.”
