By Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - A Saudi Arabian national who was injured in the bombing attack on last year's Boston Marathon has filed a defamation lawsuit against television commentator Glenn Beck for publicly accusing him of being the "money man" behind the attacks. Beck, a conservative television and radio personality, repeatedly criticized the federal investigation into the attacks that killed three people and injured 264, and in May 2013 claimed that Abdulrahman Alharbi had financed the attacks. Alharbi, a 20-year-old exchange student, said in a filing in U.S. District Court in Boston that he had been questioned by federal officials after the attack but that his questioners "quickly concluded that Mr. Alharbi ... had no involvement in the attacks." The suit, which was filed on Friday and seeks unspecified financial damages, says that Beck "substantially and severely damaged" Alharbi's reputation and that he has received messages calling him a "murderer, child killer and terrorist." Beck did not respond to an e-mail seeking comment on Tuesday.
