@Ourand_SBJ2 NY Post: "Authorities have a identified a suspect, who is currently being guarded in a Boston hospital with shrapnel wounds."

@WillBrinson Per @CBSNews law enforcement source says "bombs" were "likely located inside trash cans"

@WillBrinson .@CBSNews says law enforcement has a third unexploded device in custody. Important for forensics.

Re: Explosion reported at finish line of Boston Marathon

I've always assumed that clearing parade and marathon routs of trash cans and mail boxes prior to the event was policy.

Re: Explosion at Boston Marathon

I'm really ticked off by this, but again it's a wake up call regarding public security we take for granted and "*****" about when it gets in our way.

My prayers go out to the families of the victims and to those who lost limbs in this. It's turned into a super sad day over this for me.

Yet another attack from cowards! Watching the video SUCKS! People falling around and running and screaming - it's a horror story!

Hope they find the cowards ASAP!!

Re: Explosion at Boston Marathon

Investigators have a suspect a Saudi Arabian national in the horrific Boston Marathon bombings, The Post has learned.

Law enforcement sources said the 20-year-old suspect was under guard at an undisclosed Boston hospital.

It was not immediately clear why the man was hospitalized and whether he was injured in the attack or in his apprehension.

The man was caught less than two hours after the 2:50 p.m. bombing on the finish line of the race, in the heart of Boston.

In addition, Boston police have has surveillance video of someone bringing multiple backpacks to blast site, according to CBS News.

Police also confirmed that there was a third explosion, at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. It was not immediately clear how much damage was done or whether it was related to the bombings at the marathon finish line.

The library bombing occurred about 4:30 p.m. and more than a mile from the marathon.

A law enforcement source confirmed to The Post that 12 people were killed and nearly 50 were injured in today's blast.

Re: Explosion reported at finish line of Boston Marathon

The library is believed to have been an explosion related to a fire and not a bomb.

At this minute.

Re: Explosion reported at finish line of Boston Marathon

What ever your religion, please say a prayer for the families of those that lost loved ones, or are injured. They are going to need the strength and help in the upcoming months.

If you are atheist, please hope they have the strength to endure what will come their way.

With this many deceased or injured thousands of lives have been devastated today.

The story is quite straight yet either, I'm seeing different numbers of casualties and the suspect story is only on the NY Post (but it is being quoted on a lot of outlets).

Horrible tragedy, I remember that the 9/11 hijackers were mostly Saudi nationals, this story is just beginning...
