FBIBy ROSA SANCHEZ, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — The FBI has shared a photo of the person responsible for placing the suspected explosive devices outside the Republican National Committee and Democratic National Committee Wednesday, prior to the U.S. Capitol protests.On Thursday night, the FBI tweeted a photo of the suspect and posted a reward of up to $50,000 “for information leading to the location, arrest, and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the placement of suspected pipe bombs in Washington, D.C. on January 6, 2021.”At around 1 p.m. on Wednesday, law enforcement agencies received reports of two suspected pipe bombs with wires outside the RNC and DNC headquarters in Washington, D.C.ABC News then obtained an exclusive photo of the suspected explosive device found outside the RNC, which is located just a couple blocks away from the Capitol.A federal law enforcement source told ABC News that the suspected pipe bombs were indeed active, and U.S. Capitol Police confirmed that the devices could have caused “great harm.”“The USCP Hazardous Materials Response Team determined that both devices were, in fact, hazardous and could cause great harm to public safety,” police said in statement.Bomb technicians used water cannons to blast the devices to break them apart and render them harmless just as violent pro-Trump protesters broke though police lines and stormed into the Capitol.The Capitol siege left four people — including one female protester who was shot by law enforcement officers — and one police officer dead.The FBI is is still seeking information on those involved in the siege, and on Thursday night tweeted photos of some of the pro-MAGA protesters, asking the public for help in identifying them.last_img read more

Mahrez’s Early Goal Takes Manchester City Top Of Table

first_imgThe Cityzens got an early goal from Riyad Mahrez to get a 1-0 victory against Tottenham at Wembley Stadium on Monday night making them level at the top of the table with Liverpool on 26 points.The game was played at Wembley due to Spurs not being able to move into their new White Hart Lane was played on a rough-looking Wembley pitch that still showed lines from Sunday’s NFL game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Philadelphia Eagles.It took Mahrez only six minutes to put his team ahead, slamming a one-time shot from a Raheem Sterling pass into an empty net after Kieran Trippier had misplayed a long ball over the top of Tottenham’s defence.Man City caused problems for Spurs early in the second half, but missing the end product, with Sterling missing from close range and Kyle Walker putting too much effort on a through ball to Sergio Aguero that would have given the Argentine a clear path to the goal.Aguero wasted an excellent chance after the hour mark following some nice buildup from Man City, when he shot right at Hugo Lloris from 10 yards away with a clear look at goal.Tottenham also had the opportunity to equalize with 10 minutes to go when substitute Dele Alli, playing in his first game after missing time with a hamstring injury, setup Erik Lamela in the visitor’s penalty area only for the Spurs’ striker to shoot sky high over the crossbar.City made a sixth consecutive Premier League clean sheet to push Liverpool off the top spot on goal differential. They both have 26 points while Tottenham have 21.Relatedlast_img read more
