The FBI interviewed the men who found the luggage bomb in NYC



The two men who were caught on camera taking a bomb out of a piece of luggage the night of the bombing in Chelsea in New York City have been found and interviewed by the FBI.

Law enforcement sources told CBS News that the two men were EgyptAir crew members and were contacted overseas during a layover after being identified by the FBI. 

Surveillance footage showed New York City bomber Ahmad Khan Rahami rolling a suitcase down a Manhattan street and leaving it there. 

A few minutes later, the two men come down the street, admire the luggage, removed a pressure cooker bomb from the luggage, leave it on the sidewalk, and walk away with the luggage.

They're not in any jeopardy of being arrested. We have no reason to believe they're connected.
