The photo, which has not yet been verified, also shows the bag police believe contained the bomb right beside the child’s feet.

The photo is believed to have been taken seconds before the blast, which killed Martin along with two other victims.

Another photo shows the suspect walking away from the scene of the blasts just moments after the bombs were detonated.

Martin’s mother remains in intensive care following the blast, while his sister had her leg amputated.

The family had gathered at the finish line to greet Martin’s father, who was taking part in the race.
