Federal law enforcement officials debated whether to release photos that led to the capture of a suspect in last year's bombing at the Boston Marathon, an FBI official has told CBS News. Stephanie Douglas, executive assistant director of the FBI's National Security Division, said in a "60 Minutes" interview to be broadcast Sunday night that releasing images of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who has been charged in the bombings that killed three people and injured more than 260, was the right thing to do even though an MIT police officer was killed soon after. Prosecutors say Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan, killed officer Sean Collier while on the run.
