Just after midnight, police found five men and two women walking near the reservoir, prompting notification to the FBI. The seven are from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Singapore, with a few now living in Amherst and Northampton. State police say there’s no indication there was any terrorist activity. The Quabbin, which provides drinking water to 61 Boston-area cities and towns is off-limits to the public after dark. The investigation continues.
