Two Boston Marathon explosions near the finish line erupted at 2:57pm EDT, killing 3 and wounding 144 others. The terrorist bombings took place at Copley Square on Boylston Street. Yesterday, the City of Boston celebrated Patriots Day with their annual marathon as well as other events. Police Commissioner Edward Davis described the bombs as ″powerful devices″ which detonated within seconds of each other about 100 yards apart near the marathon′s finish line. Barack Obama would not refer to the incident as a terrorist attack when he addressed the nation, but a ′senior White House official′ did tell reporters after that the incident was obviously terrorism. The Boston Marathon injury count currently stands at 144 wounded, with about 105 people still in hospitals. Of those, 17 are listed in critical condition and 25 in serious condition. Of the three known deaths, one was an 8-year old boy who had just hugged his father for completing the marathon before the carnage began.
