Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last several hours, you’ve heard about the bombs that went off (raw footage here) near the finish line of the Boston Marathon today. Two have been confirmed dead – including an 8 year old (reportedly), over 100 injured – some severely (lost limbs, per reports). Another bomb was found later but defused, and fire at JFK library was unrelated to the marathon attacks.
I don’t have any original reporting on this – just wanted to take a moment to express my profound sadness for the victims who died and their families, and also the victims who survived and who are fighting for their lives. My thoughts and prayers are with all. I hope they find the b*stard or b*stards responsible for this and prosecute them to the absolute fullest extent of the law.
Here’s what the UK papers on the Boston Marathon look like (via @BBCBreaking):
We are all Boston.
