Boston Marathon Bombing

When I browse on my fb account, I read posts about Boston. I got curious and checked on the web  what about it. I was so shocked finding it out about the marathon bombing. I can't believe that these things happens. How come and why. The deadly bombing at the Boston Marathon  killed at least three and in addition to the deaths, more than 130 people were injured including up to 10 with amputated limbs.The White House Officials told Fox News they believed it is an act of terrorism. Two explosions tore through the finish line of the world-famous race just before 3 p.m. April 15, 2013. It is the 238th annual Patriot's Day, commemorating the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord at the beginning of the Revolutionary War. The official stressed that it was unclear whether a foreign entity like Al Qaeda was behind it or whether it was home-grown terrorism, prompting  the president’s caution in characterizing the bombing. Wall Street Journal reported that five undetonated explosive devices were found in the Boston area, and authorities were guarding a person of interest at a local hospital, according to a New York Post report confirmed by Fox News.

Authorities in New York, meanwhile, are deploying counter-terrorism vehicles around landmark sites in Manhattan, including prominent hotels, according to the New York City Police Department. 

Nearly 25,000 people, including runners from around the world, competed in Boston's celebrated 26.2-mile race, attracting huge throngs of onlookers, especially near the finish line. As part of President Obama's speech he vows for a full weight of justice for those responsible for incident.
