FBI releases new images of suspects in Boston Marathon terror attack

The FBI has released new images of suspects in the Boston Marathon terror attack.

Doug Ross managed to get them into higher resolution images:

The New York Times' Lede blog has posted a higher resolution image of suspect 2 (the one on the right)  (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).

Meanwhile, Bloomberg reports that Jeff Bauman, the man who was seen sitting a wheelchair with both legs blown off, has told the FBI and police that he saw the bomber (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).

Just before 3 p.m. on April 15, Bauman was waiting among the crowd for his girlfriend to cross the finish line at the Boston Marathon. A man wearing a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt looked at Jeff, 27, and dropped a bag at his feet, his brother, Chris Bauman, said in an interview.
Two and a half minutes later, the bag exploded, tearing Jeff’s legs apart. A picture of him in a wheelchair, bloodied and ashen, was broadcast around the world as he was rushed to Boston Medical Center. He lost both legs below the knee. 
“He woke up under so much drugs, asked for a paper and pen and wrote, ‘bag, saw the guy, looked right at me,’” Chris Bauman said yesterday in an interview.
Those words may help crack the mystery of who perpetrated one of the highest-profile acts of terror in the U.S. since the 2001 assault on New York City and the Washington area, one that killed three people and wounded scores.
While still in intensive care, Jeff Bauman gave the FBI a description of the man he saw, his brother said. Bauman’s information helped investigators narrow down whom to look for in hours of video of the attack, he said.
Here's video of the FBI releasing the images on Thursday.

Let's go to the videotape.
