Default Boston Marathon bombed - 04-15-2013, 21:28 | posts: 6,446 | Location: Chilling

Two-three explosions went off at Copley Square in Boston, the finish line of today’s marathon, reportedly leaving several dead and hundreds injured.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say it was probably domestic terrorism. April 15th is "Tax day" and the area where one of the bombs went off was where the Newton family victims were waiting and were honored at the beginning of the Marathon.

I think it should be clarified that 2 died and 23 got injured, not dozens dead as the OP suggests.

It's horrible to see that this has happened, and hope that those responsible will be caught.

New York Post is quoting a Federal official and reporting "12 dead".

More bombs found since the initial explosions, it's a good thing they were found before going off.

My condolences to the dead and their families.

lets keep the speculation down, the jfk library was an electrical fire.
Not castigating.

i agree with other people, it's Patriots Day, Tax Day, and the Marathon. I'll do some speculating myself and guess it's an domestic situation. either way a tragic loss of life.

After looking around and seeing some of the images floating around, I'll be shocked if only two people died. Hell, I'll be shocked if we're not looking at double digits.

Looks like the third incident is likely not related to the two bombings

Absolutely disgusting!

Hope the people responsible are caught and brought to justice!

In the meantime my thoughts go out the victims.

NY Post is reporting that a Saudi national has been arrested as a suspect, he was injured in one of the explosions.



Here are some extremely NSFW pictures of the scene.

NY post is a gossip magazine.

Also, now the JFK library seems to be related, so we'll see what happens.

Already put some more spoilers on it to hide it more.

EDIT: Chosen to take it down in respect for the man in the photo, plus I am sure its been already linked to on another site.
