SPOKANE, Wash. – Federal authorities have arrested at least one person allegedly connected to a backpack bomb found during a Martin Luther King parade in January. Federal agents called the backpack bomb an act of "domestic terrorism" and their agency's highest priority in the Spokane area.

City workers found a suspicious backpack along a parade route on Martin Luther King day where thousands of people were scheduled to march.
