FBI Releases Images Of Two Suspects In Boston Bombing< < Back to
UPDATE 5:33 p.m. The FBI has released photos of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings and is asking for the public's help in identifying them.
FBI Agent Richard DesLauriers said the photos came from surveillance cameras, photos and other evidence near the explosion sites.
DesLauriers says one the suspects is believed to have planted the devices near the finish line of the race. He says both suspects are considered armed and extremely dangerous.
The explosions Monday killed three people and injured more than 180.
The images were released hours after President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama attended an interfaith service at a Roman Catholic cathedral in Boston to remember the victims, including an 8-year-old boy.
UPDATE 4:40 p.m. The FBI and other law enforcement officials are planning a news briefing Thursday afternoon on the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings.
The briefing will be held at 5 p.m. at the Sheraton Boston Hotel.
FBI agent Richard DesLauriers, U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz and other law enforcement officials are expected to update the media on the investigation.
The briefing is one of a series held since Monday's attacks.
Three people were killed and dozens injured Monday in two explosions near the finish line.
UPDATE 12:29 p.m. President Barack Obama declared "there is a piece of Boston in me" as he paid tribute to a city shaken by what he has called an act of terror. He said: "Every one of us stands with you."
Obama addressed an interfaith service in the aftermath of Monday's twin blasts that killed three and injured more 170 people at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
Obama said a day of beauty was shattered when a celebration became a tragedy.
He said Boston gathered Tuesday, quote, "to reaffirm that the spirit of this city is undaunted."
He declared: "You will run again!"
Of the perpetrator, he said: "We will find you."
UPDATE 12:13 p.m. Obama tells mourners in Boston that everyone has been touched by attack on their beloved city.
UPDATE 11:07 a.m. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says the FBI wants to speak with two men seen in at least one video from the Boston Marathon, but she says she isn't calling them suspects.
Without providing details of the men's appearance or what the video shows, Napolitano told the House Homeland Security Committee on Thursday that "there is some video that raised the question" of two men the FBI would like to interview but said she wouldn't described them as suspects.
Napolitano said it's still unclear whether the bombs that exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon were the work of foreign or domestic terrorists. She said the investigation is continuing "apace."
Three people were killed and more than 170 others were injured when the bombs exploded Monday.
The work to identify a bombing suspect from reams of Boston Marathon footage has yielded a possible breakthrough as investigators focus on a man seen dropping off a bag near the site of the second of two deadly explosions.
City Council President Stephen Murphy says investigators saw the image of the man dropping off a bag and matched the findings with witness descriptions of someone leaving the scene. He says he was briefed by Boston police.
President Barack Obama is planning to attend a service honoring the victims Thursday in Boston, where the bombings three days earlier killed three people and wounded more than 170.
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick said he understands frustration that no suspects have been captured, but he said it takes time to complete a thorough investigation.
