Secretary of State John Kerry addressed the ongoing manhunt for the remaining Boston Marathon bombing suspect Friday morning, shortly after ending a video conference with President Barack Obama and more than a dozen cabinet members.

Speaking at the outset of a joint press conference with the Mexican secretary of foreign affairs, Kerry offered a brief statement on the recent developments.

“This entire week we’ve been in a pretty direct confrontation with evil,” Kerry said.

Kerry declined to speculate on the motivation of the suspects, saying, “Like everyone, we are going to watch and wait,” and that he would “await law enforcement before commenting further.”
