        So...NO explosion at JFK LIbrary?...it was a mechanical fire, library folks say. Police Commissioner said it was an explosion...this is classically what can happen in events like this...

        Still confusion at the JFK Library site. Not uncommon.

          WBZ unofficial reports - no injuries at JFK library

          reporting many ATF and Secret Service agents on scene (presumably this was a declared "National Security Event" , in which the Secret Service is in charge of security.

            indeed, I underestimated the 'warning' on that image and was taken aback - never seen a leg blown off neither. Poor feller, I hope he makes a recovery, there were children at the event of course, I haven't (thankfully) seen any such images of them wounded thusfar.

              Anybody seen a report on the suspect?

              I saw a bogus link claiming a Saudi was responsible.

                  I wonder if the injured suspect was trying to die at the scene.

                    There have been several reports. Specifically the New York Post. I think the police have confirmed they have a suspect being guarded at the hospitle.

                      Police say they have nobody in custody in an article I just read. The NY Post seems to have reported that first, and the NYP is a tabloid.

                      It could very well be there was simply a saudi caught in the blast and the NYP got on with the catchy headlines.

                        I haven't seen anything credible directly from authorities about an ID, Cody.

                        The casualty numbers certainly seem to be rising. God help all so effected.

                            The last report I just heard was that the third explosion was related to a fire at the JFK librray. But I also heard that the Boston P.D. has a person of intrest in cutody. It seems he came into a hospital with burns to be treated .
