    Nasty, the effects of this could be huge. Just as the war on terror is winding down a whole new event.

    I dont understand why someone would want to blow people up who are watching, or are taking part in, a marathon.Hope the officials get those who did it.Disgusting act, their race/religion or whatever else is unimportant.

    The timing of the explosions is a little confusing tho? 3 hours after the professional runners have finished? surely the more dramatic explosion would have been then? or was it designed to hit innocents? - horrible images though.

    everyone that had run 25 miles must be doubly pissed off right now
    People are being able to finish, the finish has been rerouted elsewhere.

    Apparently the marathon was being run in honour of the victims of the Newtown massacre and some of the families were positioned in the VIP section near the finish line. Awful, just awful, can't even begin to imagine what they must be going through.

    Fewer people hit if timed for the professionals.

    I love how your comment implies professional runners are not innocent. :P
