FBI releases video showing bombing suspects

A short video released by the FBI on Thursday shows two suspects in Monday's Boston Marathon attack walking single file on a sidewalk along the race route.

The video was released Thursday as investigators asked for the public's help in identifying the two men.

One of the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings left a bag believed to contain one of the explosives outside the Forum restaurant on Boylston Street in the city, FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard DesLauriers said. The bag was dropped there "within minutes" of the explosions, he added.

      @s kel,FBI better gettem before Bostons finest does or they may be 50lbs heavier with lead in their butts in body bags and that's being polite ...Boston will screw with them and some cops don't like it when local people they know have been injured,killed especially if its by these two guys they're looking for are foriegners than its anything goes..

    Why would someone with a supposedly heavy backpack carry it only on one shoulder?

    There was a fox zipper melted in one of the photos with the BB's & Nails Fox as in the Fox racing the bag looks like a fox bag.

    My comment is just an observation. While everyone is probably thinking that these terrorists are either Middle Eastern or homegrown American, I took a good look at terrorist #1 hiding under his hat. I think this guy looks like he could be a North Korean. His nose and features look Asian to me. What does everyone else think? The 2nd guy looks of a mixed race and that's probably why he's not afraid to show his face. Don't forget, North Korea was threatening to make good on their threats this week...

      I agree with SW. The person called suspect #1 in the black hat definitely looks of Asian descent to me as well. Also is probably why he wears sunglasses to cover the obvious. I would be very surprised if this observation in incorrect.

      I agree a few others have mentioned the girl in the yellow top, I suspect there maybe other footage ruling her out in some way. Also the guy in white shoes in the doorway appears to watch the 2 suspects then clearly puts earpiece in his left air and makes a call or comment?

    I wouldn't be surprised if there are other individuals involved that are somewhere in the audience. Wondering if they had the white hat and black hat so other people in their clan could identify them. Just a thought. Although, a lot of people had hats on that day. Ya never know. My gut feeing tells me that there has to be more involved.

    Right now who knows? Still they are making progress. I actually hope there is no NK connection as it would result is a war! Other than that if they catch them, and they are the ones, just make them dissapear and be done with it!

    Seriously, a wounded Saudi national with burns on hands was tackled by a person immediately after bomb went off. The Saudi national was taken to a hospital and under heavy protection. He was not labelled a suspect, yet his apartment in Revere was searched and investigators left home with three large bags of belongings. Not one journalist has reported about the hero/villain who tackled the Saudi national. Who was this person? Did he witness something that caused him to react in such a heroic manner? Did he jump to conclusions that caused him to attack an innocent wounded survivor? Why don't you or me know anything about this hero/villain? Does CNN investigate and report the news free of governmental influence? I demand free press! Maybe we should be supporting Wikileaks.
