Despite volumes of information made public about the suspects of last week’s Boston Marathon bombings, linking the attacks to terrorism remains a difficult task, Tom Brister, a senior lecturer at Wake Forest University on terrorism and counterterrorism, said Monday.

However, Brister, who teaches about counter-insurgency and globalization in the school’s Department of Politics and International Affairs, praised the swiftness with which law-enforcement officials handled the incident. One of the suspects, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was killed Thursday night in a gun battle with police in Cambridge, Mass., and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, his 19-year-old brother, was captured alive Friday.
