WEST NEW YORK, N.J. (AP) -- The FBI has removed a computer from the New Jersey home of the sister of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.

Police in West New York say the woman is cooperating in the investigation, but they didn't immediately release her name. They have cordoned off the three-story brick building across the Hudson River from New York City.

The woman, speaking earlier through a crack in the door, told News12 New Jersey and The Star-Ledger she is sorry for the families that lost loved ones.

She says she doesn't know what got into her brothers. At the same time, she says she doesn't know if it's true that her brothers were responsible.

Her brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed overnight in a shootout with police outside Boston. Her younger brother remains at large.
