The two men who own a BMW with the license plate ‘Terrorista #1’ and who are said to be friends with the younger Boston bombing suspect were taken into custody again on Saturday.
This time the two foreign nationals were arrested over alleged immigration violations in the Massachusetts town, New Bedford, where police say the surviving suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, may have once lived.
The students, named by neighbours by their first names Azmat and Diaz, drive a black BMW 330XI with the personalised plate and a sticker on the back which reads: ‘F*** you, you f****** f****’.

They are thought to be from Kazakhstan and had not been seen since the bombings until Friday night when their ground floor apartment in New Bedford, MA, was raided by a dozen FBI agents at gunpoint.
One of their girlfriends was also arrested on Friday. All three are in their late teens or early 20s.
The three were subsequently released on Friday night before Saturday's arrest of the two men.
Their apartment was raided because police say the younger Boston Marathon bombing suspect, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, may have lived at their address.
MailOnline has discovered another link - Dzhokhar Tweeted pictures of the car on his Twitter account J_tsar.

Two women and one man, both of whom appeared to be college-aged, were apprehended for questioning from the Hidden Brook Apartments on Carriage Drive in New Bedford
The three were apprehended after the FBI conducted a search warrant on an apartment at the complex
In another a group of boys stand by both vehicles and a youth can be seen making a gesture that looks like a gun towards the camera.
The three arrests took place at the Hidden Brook housing complex in New Bedford.
A neighbour claimed that the men had said the BMW was stolen or that they claimed they had rented it and were not paying the rental fee.
Inside the car was a receipt from a Ralph Lauren store, a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses, a receipt from a shipping company, a prescription, lots of crushed water bottles and a number of parking tickets.
The neighbour told MailOnline that Azmat and Diaz were ‘nice boys’ who were light skinned, thin and short.
She said that they were students at the University of Massachusetts and had been living in the apartment for around a year.
She said: ‘They used to have parties until three or four in the morning. There would be drinking and dancing and the police would come. I didn’t mind but they stayed up til late every now and then’.

The neighbour said that when the the police raided the apartment there were armed officers on the tennis court out the back on a tennis court lying down with their guns pointed towards the apartment.
The FBI later brought a U-Haul truck to the rear of the apartment but did not take anything away.
The neighbour said that when the boys were led out she heard ‘scuffles’ and that they were led away with their hands in zip ties.
The neighbour said ‘I’ve not spoken to them since the bombings. They have thick accents so I find it hard to understand them anyway.

‘They went away for a couple of weeks a few months ago but they did not say where. I don’t know if they went back to Kazakhstan.
Two Russian speaking men in their early 20s later arrived at the apartment and told reporters they were journalists from the Boston Globe.
They then entered the apartment through an unlocked patio door. When asked what they were doing they said: ‘We are friends of theirs. They are talking, they are talking’ and closed the door.
When MailOnline rang the City desk of the Boston Globe, a man said: ‘We’re very busy right now. Consider us informed’.
The apartment complex is about 10 minutes from the Dartmouth campus, where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was a student
