BOSTON - A Saudi Arabian man who was injured in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing has settled a lawsuit filed against US conservative media commentator Glenn Beck for claiming the man had helped finance the deadly attack.

The two sides on Wednesday declined to comment on the terms of the settlement deal, first disclosed in a filing in US District Court in Boston on Tuesday."No party has admitted any fault, wrongdoing, or responsibility as part of the settlement," the Saudi man, Abdulrahman Alharbi, and Beck's media company, The Blaze Inc, said in a joint statement.

Abdulrahman sued Beck in 2014, saying the commentator had repeatedly described him as the "money man" behind the bombing, which killed three people and injured 264. He said Beck continued to repeat the claim after federal officials had cleared him of wrongdoing.
