January 29, local time, the FBI released more details of suspects who planted two barrel bombs near the Capitol during the violent attack on Congress, and raised the reward to $100,000 again.
Previously, the FBI had raised the reward from 50,000 US dollars to 75,000 US dollars. In the latest information released by the FBI, it was confirmed that the two tubular bombs were placed at the headquarters of the Republican and Democratic National Committees between 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time on January 5.
Police obtained more videos about the suspect from surrounding residents and merchants, and finally determined that the suspect who planted the bomb was wearing a light sweatshirt, a mask and gloves, carrying a backpack, and wearing a pair of yellow, black and gray sneakers.
In order to find the suspect as soon as possible, the FBI raised the reward to $100,000 again on the 29th.
Although the two bombs did not explode on January 6, some experts analyzed that the bombs may have been deliberately used to distract the security forces from the protesters to break into the Capitol.
