Texas bomb suspect left behind video 'confession'

Police say Austin bombing suspect's mobile phone had a 25-minute video recording in which he described how he built each explosive device.

    Police say they have found concrete evidence a 23-year-old was behind a bombing spree in the US state of Texas, by revealing that the bomber's mobile phone had a 25-minute recorded confession detailing each of the six explosives he made, leaving them confident none are still waiting to detonate.

    The suspect, Mark Anthony Conditt, steered his car into a ditch and blew himself up on Wednesday.

    No motive has been identified at this point, according to Austin police.

    Al Jazeera's John Hendren reports from the Conditt's hometown of Pflugerville.
