Investigators believe they have the clear images of the two men who planted the two bombs that killed 3 people and injured 176 at the Boston marathon finish line on Monday.

But the suspects have not been identified yet. The authorities are reported to be considering releasing their images seeking public’s help in identifying them.

The FBI, which is leading the investigations, first rescheduled and then cancelled its daily briefing on the case on Wednesday, leaving many unanswered questions.

President Barack Obama received his briefing on the progress in the morning before leaving for an interfaith prayer service in Boston, but aides refused to give out the details.

“Your resolve is the greatest rebuke to whoever committed this heinous act,” Obama said at the prayer service.

And to those responsible for the Boston attacks, he said: “Yes, we will find you. And yes, you will face justice.”

Investigators have been poring over hundred and thousands of video recordings — from surveillance cameras or handheld cams and smartphones for clues. There were reports on Wednesday that recording from a surveillance camera of a store across the street showed a suspect placing the bag containing the explosives.

Investigators now have clearer images of at least two men. They also have the remains of the bags used to carry the explosive devices.
