I hope the dudes they chasing or in custody are the 2 that did the bombings.More than likely they are.
The guy that was in his wheelchair with his legs blown off is the one who identified one of the bombers.He said he looked him in eyes then he dropped the bag and walked off then 2mins later it blew up.
