Washington: The website of FBI has reportedly crashed after the agency revealed photos and video of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings.

During the FBI press conference on Thursday, the agency revealed photos and video, and urged people to go to fbi.gov to look at the photos and video of the two men.

Within seconds the site wouldn't load and presented people with a "server too busy" alert.

The site, presumably, went down as a result of a surge of traffic, the ABC News reports.

The site has struggled to handle the crush of traffic and as of publishing this article was slowly coming back online.

The FBI said that the site had a rush of traffic after the press conference, but added that site performance had stabilized, the report said.
