The big stories of this week include the arrest of 23-year-old Alexander Ciccolo for an alleged plot inspired by the Boston Marathon bombers to attack a university, President Obama's Iran nuclear deal, and the scathing audit of the Boston Redevelopment Authority.
- "Alexander Ciccolo was arrested July 4 for allegedly plotting to attack a university, inspired by the Boston Marathon bombers. The FBI were tipped off by the defendant’s estranged father, Police Captain Robert Ciccolo."
- "The nuclear deal with Iran, which was reached Tuesday, would significantly limit Tehran’s nuclear program for more than a decade. In return, international sanctions would be lifted."
