By Nate Raymond NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. federal authorities on Wednesday announced an increased reward of $115,000 for information leading to the conviction of individuals responsible for the 2008 bombing in New York's Times Square. The FBI, which had offered a $65,000 reward in 2013, said it was actively pursuing several "persons of interest," and has identified the origin of the explosive device's components. "However, we're going to need more input and information from the general public if we're going to solve this case," Peter Tzitzis, an FBI special agent, told reporters. At a press conference on Wednesday, FBI and New York Police Department officials said they believed the person who planted the device was male and that the incident was not tied to any foreign organizations.
