The intense investigation into the weekend bomb blasts in New York and New Jersey is leading authorities to signs of a possible terror cell in those two states, law enforcement officials say.

BBs and ball bearings were among the pieces of metal that appeared to be packed into both pressure cooker bombs in New York. a federal law enforcement official says.
