Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev appeared in court Wednesday and agreed to voluntarily detention.
    
Their next hearing is scheduled for May 14.
    
A third man, Robel Phillipos, is charged with making false statements to federal investigators. He awaits a court appearance.
    
An FBI affidavit says the three men removed bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's backpack from his dorm room at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth three days after the bombing.

BOSTON (AP) - Two law enforcement officials briefed on the investigation say two of the three people newly arrested in the Boston Marathon bombing case are two 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.
    
The officials who said they were in custody spoke to The Associated Press Wednesday condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about the investigation.
    
One of the officials said the third suspect was a man.
    
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 (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv), who is originally from Russia.

PREVIOUS COVERAGE:

BOSTON (AP) - Boston police say three more suspects have been taken into custody in the marathon bombings.
    
In a tweet Wednesday morning, the police department says only that three more suspects are in custody and more details will follow. Police spokeswoman Cheryl Fiandaca confirmed the tweet but referred all other questions to the FBI.
    
Three people were killed and more than 260 injured on April 15 when two bombs exploded near the finish line.
    
Suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev died after a gunfight with police several days later. His brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was captured and lies in a hospital prison.
    
Both are Russian natives who lived for several years in the U.S. They are accused of using a weapon of mass destruction.
