BOSTON (AP) -- Bomb units scrambled Wednesday to investigate four suspicious devices reported almost simultaneously throughout Boston. The reports forced the temporary shutdowns of part of an interstate, a key inbound roadway and a bridge between Boston and Cambridge.

Police said four calls, which all came in around 1 p.m., reported suspicious devices at the Boston University Bridge, the Longfellow Bridge, the Tufts-New England Medical Center and a major intersection.
The reports came just hours after authorities detonated a suspicious device at subway station located under Interstate 93 in Boston.
Subway service across the Longfellow Bridge, between Boston and Cambridge, was suspended temporarily.
A spokeswoman for the medical center said they had been given the all-clear. A spokesman for the MBTA also said subway service was allowed to resume over the Longfellow Bridge.
