BOSTON (AP) - The governor of Massachusetts says three people who've been taken into custody in the Boston Marathon bombing case are suspected of helping the surviving bombing suspect after the fact.

Deval Patrick says it's his understanding that the three had nothing to do with the bombings themselves. Officials say the three include two college friends of suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

lawyer says two of the three people newly arrested in the Boston Marathon bombing case are men originally from Kazakhstan who were friendly with the main suspect.

Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev appeared via video for a visa violation hearing in immigration court in Boston on Wednesday.

Boston attorney Linda Cristello represented them and confirmed they now face separate federal charges and have a court appearance this afternoon related to the Boston Marathon bombing.

She says lawyers don't know what the charges are and won't until later.

The two have been held in a county jail for more than a week on allegations that they violated their student visas while attending the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth with suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev who is originally from Russia.

Cristello did not say who the third suspect was.
