First Lady Michelle Obama reportedly visited two Saudi Arabian nationals who were injured in the Boston Marathon bombings in the hospital to check on their health, according to TheBlaze, citing Saudi Arabian news website Okaz.com.

One of the two Saudi Arabian nationals that Mrs. Obama visited on Thursday was previously considered to be a person of interest during the aftermath of the bombings and was considered for deportation, sources told TheBlaze.


The names of the two Saudi Arabian Nationals are Abdul Rahman Ali Isa al-Salmi al-Harbi and Noura Khaled Saleh al-Ajaji. Both were injured in the legs by flying glass fragments from the nearby Colby glasses store.

The visits were closed to the media and scheduled with little advance notice due to security reasons, according to TheBlaze.


The nature of their nationality brought attention from the media because very early reports by news outlets claimed that authorities arrested a Saudi national as a suspect for the bombing. However those claims came out to be false as police denied any arrest at the time. 

In a statement to the public Friday night after the capture of the second bomber suspect, President Obama said that the country will deploy all necessary resources to collect intelligence an determine if the suspects had any associations with terrorist organizations and find out what motivated them to carry out the bloody attacks.

"One thing we do know is that whatever hateful agenda drove these men to such heinous acts will not -- cannot -- prevail.  Whatever they thought they could ultimately achieve, they've already failed.  They failed because the people of Boston refused to be intimidated," Obama said Friday night.

"They failed because, as Americans, we refused to be terrorized.  They failed because we will not waver from the character and the compassion and the values that define us as a country.  Nor will we break the bonds that hold us together as Americans," he added.
