The FBI will search for more bombs today in the bunker where a five-year-old boy from Alabama was held hostage.

Authorities found two homemade bombs yesterday.

One was in the underground bunker, the other was in a pipe that the hostage taker used to communicate with police.

Jimmy Lee Dykes was killed in a raid on the bunker Monday.

The boy, named Ethan, was rescued and today is his sixth birthday.

He was taken hostage last week when Dykes attacked a school bus and killed the driver.
