A photograph of the two young Moroccan immigrants standing near the finish line was featured on the newspaper's front page three days after the bombing. Salaheddin Barhoum and Yassine Zaimi were never suspected of involvement and say the story damaged their reputations and caused emotional distress.
In court filings, lawyers representing the newspaper said recently unsealed emails support the Post's contention that law enforcement was seeking at the time to identify the men pictured. But the plaintiffs' attorneys say the Post ignored other emails including one that called it "bogus intel."
