INTERPOL has issued an international security alert requested by U.S. authorities.

The Orange Notice contains photos of the devices and identifying information, including fingerprints of the two suspects, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, 19, currently being searched for by authorities, and his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, who died after a shoot-out with police in Boston.

"The decision by the FBI and US authorities to request an INTERPOL Orange Notice will enable police services and other law enforcement agencies around the world to advise US law enforcement authorities whether they've come across similarly designed devices in their own investigations," said INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble.

"Equally as important is the decision by the INTERPOL National Central Bureau in Washington to authorize a sanitized version to be circulated to the public, as their vigilance can be essential in alerting law enforcement to potential threats.

"One of INTERPOL's core missions is to ensure that national law enforcement authorities have the information they need to help protect their citizens from any threats, and we will continue to liaise closely with each of our member countries during this investigation," concluded the INTERPOL Chief.

The bombings in Boston resulted in the death of three people, including an eight-year-old boy, and injured more than 170 others.
