BOSTON, April 23 (Reuters) - Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect, bought two large packages of fireworks in February from a store in Seabrook, New Hampshire, the company that runs the store said on Tuesday.

The amount of explosive powder in the purchased fireworks would not have been "anywhere near enough" to build the bombs used in the marathon attack as they have been described publicly, William Weimer, vice president at Phantom Fireworks, said. (Reporting by Aaron Pressman; Editing by Gary Hill)
