Two explosions... spectators are saying it came from trash cans... officials do not want to comment.

lennox blown out, people lost limbs, race halted there was a run through the Prudential Mall, gridlock traffic and chaos. No evacuation done yet... they are still trying to get a handle on the situation, the runners were redirected a block over.

This is very sad, be it from terrorism or accident (speculations that it was an electrical explosion).

Many people dream of running the Boston Marathon. This is a horrible way for the race to end.

The JFK Library is also on fire.

Police say "secondary devices" still being found.

As a runner who has run several marathons, I am extremely upset about this. If this is indeed a terrorist act, the perpretators are a bunch of evil, heartless human beings. My heart goes out to the victims, and hopefully no one dies from their injuries rose
