wounded near the finish line of Monday's race.
Suspect 2, whose
white cap is turned backward, is seen casually walking down a busy
sidewalk with a pack that investigators believe was set down near the
site of the second explosion.

black nylon pack described earlier as possibly used to carry the
explosive devices, the officials have said.

Medford, and Lu Lingzi, a 23-year-old Boston University graduate
student from China.
