Breaking news, explosion at Boston Marathon finishing line
Terrible. Must be around the 4-4.30 hr finish time. Hope not too many people hurt - hopefully most the crowd already moved away as most runners finished. Race stopped
Watching it live on CNN - unbelievable...
Clock time was 4.09 when the explosion occured. That means likely 1/3 or more of the field yet to finish (wont finish now). Hopefully all those others will have moved away from the area.
Looks terrible. And I cannot see how these things can be prevented. Hopefully big city marathons won't be deterred.
WTF? Who bombs a marathon?
We dont yet know it's a bomb - could be generators, gas lines etc. But, likely foul play.
Horrible news from Boston.
Sadly French news have reported 3 deaths and several dozen casualties. This is so sick. I was concerned last Sunday about Paris being targeted because of Mali, never thought it would happen ... why Boston? Why?
That footage on The Marathon Show....the end of the video....Blood all over the pavement.
I have no words.
Jackie Bruno, a reporter for New England Cable News, said on Twitter that she saw people’s legs blown off.
2 confirmed dead by Boston police. I feel quite sickened.
Oh, and while I'm in work mode - sorry - smokers. Seriously guys? Stop.
Not sure why that re-posted. Sorry.
Those were powerful explosions. People were right in the way. Fatalities I guess would be expected. Awful.
Two confirmed dead so far by the BBC.
3rd exposive device found.
