WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) — Police in Boston have released a new photo showing the man believed to be a suspect in the marathon bombings, shown in earlier footage in a white hat.

In the new photo, he's wearing a gray hoodie sweatshirt pulled up on his head. Police say he's on the loose, and is considered a "threat to "anybody that might approach him."

Police have called him a "terrorist." Suspect No. 1, also known as the "black hat" suspect was taken into custody and later died.

The new photo was taken at a 7-Eleven in Cambridge, just across the river from the city.


BOSTON (AP) — 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 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.

Within moments of the FBI releasing the images on its website, the agency's website crashed.

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.
