The FBI has released photos of two suspects in the Boston bombing and urged the public to contact them with any relevant detail, no matter how small.
"We are releasing photographs of these suspects," referred to as Suspect 1 and Suspect 2, who "appear to be walking together through the crowd along Boylston Street," stated FBI Special Agent Richard DesLauriers. "Suspect number 2 is the only one seen planting the bomb," he added.
"We strongly urge you to contact us if you have not already done so," said DesLauriers, addressing the public directly. "For over 100 years, the FBI has relied on the public to be its eyes and ears. We know the public will play a credible role in locating these individuals. No information, no matter how small, is too small."
"We consider them armed and extremely dangerous," DesLauriers warned. "No one should approach them."
"There is no additional imminent danger that we're aware of right now," he concluded, in what sounds like an extremely qualified reassurance.
DesLauriers also warned the press and others who've been publishing photos of men with rucksacks and engaging in amateur detective work. "Other photos should not be deemed credible as they divert the public's attention."
The Q&A was interrupted by an Inforwars journalist shouting.
"This is probably the most important FBI briefing in history," said Chris Matthews before the briefing began.
