    Bombs go off at Boston Marathon

    Right now the news is in chaos, no one really knows much. Checking foreign press.

    This from the Hollywood Reporter

    Two bombs were detonated at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, hours after the first runners had completed the race.
    Both cable and broadcast networks broke into afternoon programming to cover the attack, which, according to one Boston.com reporter, had injured at least a dozen people. An eyewitness told the site that there was "blood everywhere" at the scene.

      Is it confirmed that there were two detonations?

        I cannot believe this is happening. My prayers to the victims.

        I want to believe this is an accident but the CNN reporters more or less implied it was a bombing. Nobody has said the word yet but everyone knows it. Two explosions less than a minute apart. At least 3 dead, 30+ injured according to the Boston Police Dept, several victims had severed limbs as well.

        This is not good

              Two explosions in short order: is it premature to seek similarities with past incidents?

                      Jose50's from New Hampshire, but that's a ways away from Boston, and I'm sure that he's sense enough not to approach the place on Patriots' Day.

                        Small homemade bomb is preliminary cause of explosion at Boston Marathon, law enforcement officials tell @NBCNews

                        23 injured, 2 confirmed dead

                        There was reports of a third explosion, but most reports indicate it was a controlled explosion done by police on a suspicious package.

                          Christ, any official word yet if accident or terrorist? (though by the sound of it it's unlikely a gas leak or whatever)

                            At this point, the Boston Police Department acknowledge 2 dead & 23 wounded.

                            2 explosions, each on opposite sides of the street from the other.

                            Word on the Boston PD radio of a controlled explosion that will occur across from the library due to possible explosive found there.
