2 Men Who Found Unexploded Bomb in Travel Bag Were Egyptian and are Back in Egypt

For the record.

Investigators have identified the two men who found a travel bag containing an unexploded bomb on a Manhattan street this month, a few blocks from where a bomb exploded, reports The New York Times.

According to officials, the two men, approximately ages 35 and 42, were tourists from Egypt who have since returned to their home country.

Investigators obtained an image of the men with what appeared to be the same travel bag in the hotel’s lobby from around 9:50 p.m., less than an hour and a half after a bomb exploded a few blocks away.

The F.B.I. has submitted a request to the Egyptian government and is seeking to question the two men.
