Boston Marathon Bombing

A new Boston Massacre happened at the finish line of the Boston Marathon today as two bombs went off.

The explosions killed, depending on what report you look at, 2 to 12 people, injuring many more, and unexploded devices are still being found.

There's some terrible real-time footage of the attack at Deadspin, including at least one of the explosions as it happens.

It's too early to speculate as to who may be responsible for this, but one report has police stating they have a suspect in custody.

Prayers for the dead victims, and for a quick recovery of all those who were hurt in this outrage. I'm hoping, hopefully not in vain, that the report of 12 dead is wrong.

Let's also hope the police do swiftly catch those responsible.

Update: This could all be the result of mistaken, garbled and early speculation, but a NY Post report states that the suspect is a Saudi Arabian National seen placing backpacks in camera footage.
