We have performed kinematically complete measurements of dissociation of [Formula Presented] into [Formula Presented] and two neutrons at [Formula Presented] MeV. The targets were Sn and Pb. A prominent peak around 0.4 MeV in the relative energy distribution of the [Formula Presented] system is consistent with the ground state of [Formula Presented] suggesting sequential decay via [Formula Presented] in [Formula Presented] dissociation. Further evidence of the sequential decay was found in neutron momentum distributions. The excitation energy distributions of [Formula Presented] were reconstructed. For the Sn target, it shows a peak which is suggestive of the first excited state of [Formula Presented] MeV, [Formula Presented] MeV, and [Formula Presented] The distribution for the Pb target was found to have a broad structure, indicating the [Formula Presented] continuum, as observed in measurements of other halo nuclei. The photonuclear cross section [Formula Presented] and the dipole strength function [Formula Presented] were deduced for the first time. The integrated dipole strength up to 3 MeV decay energy is [Formula Presented] Insignificant energy-weighted strength, compared to the cluster sum rule, indicates that [Formula Presented] does not have the [Formula Presented] structure. Agreement of the measured neutron momentum distributions with the COSMA model is in favor of the [Formula Presented] structure.
