PBS Newshour: Latest On Boston Bombing Investigation
Reporting on Boston Bombing Leads to Conflicting Answers
Despite media outlets' conflicting reports, the FBI insisted no arrests had been made in connection to the Boston Marathon bombings. Jeffrey Brown talks with WBUR's David Boeri, who reported that senior judges and top officials were directed to prepare the courthouse for an impending arrest until threats shut down the building.
Authorities Circulate Photos of Two Men
Investigators probing the deadly Boston Marathon bombings are circulating photos of two men spotted chatting near the packed finish line, The Post has learned.
In the photos being distributed by law-enforcement officials among themselves, one of the men is carrying a blue duffel bag. The other is wearing a black backpack in the first photo, taken at 10:53 a.m., but it is not visible in the second, taken at 12:30 p.m.
“The attached photos are being circulated in an attempt to identify the individuals highlighted therein,” said an e-mail obtained by The Post. “Feel free to pass this around to any of your fellow agents elsewhere.”
Meanwhile, officials have identified two potential suspects who were captured on surveillance videos taken shortly before the deadly blasts, law-enforcement sources told The Post yesterday.
Authorities know the names of the two men, but do not have enough evidence to make an arrest for Monday’s attack, which killed three and wounded 176, the sources said.
It was not immediately clear if the men in the law-enforcement photos are the same men in the surveillance videos.
