“We’re very much interested in speaking to them. … There are no criminal charges. They are not in jeopardy of being arrested,” he said.

According to the FBI, security camera footage taken on 27th Street shows the men “allegedly located a piece of luggage on the sidewalk, removed an improvised explosive device from the luggage, and then left the vicinity leaving the device behind but taking the luggage.”
