Boston Police: No Arrests Have Been Made In Marathon Bombing


(via the-eleventh-blog)



New York Post twitter is reporting suspect is Saudi national

“Breaking: Authorities ID a Saudi national as a suspect in Boston Marathon bombings

Guys the New York Post is a racist, vile piece of crap of a newspaper. For those of you in the UK—it’s like the Daily Mail of the US.

Until this is actually confirmed by other sources, I am side-eyeing the fuck out of this.

The Boston Globe (BostonGlobe) on Twitter



The Boston Globe’s twitter has really quick live updates of the situation, including possible places to be wary of. Everyone stay safe

They’re now reporting that the Bruins game scheduled for this evening has been postponed, that the JFK Library incident is now being treated as an explosion (rather than an unrelated fire as was previously reported), and have provided 1 800 494 TIPS as the number to contact for anyone who might have information.



Governor Patrick has asked that if you have any information about the incident in Boston, call this tip line.

Unfortunately it looks like the two initial explosions at the Boston marathon may not be the end of it. So again, stay safe and heed emergency warnings. (From the Boston Globe twitter)

WBZ reports bombs were in trashcans

So stay clear of those please!

They recovered one other device, and seemed to have  detonated another one earlier.

The Eleventh Blog: hi i live in boston and here's what's been reported on so far


  • there were two explosions in copley square near the end of the finish line
  • a reliable news channel here reported on a third, controlled explosion, so it was likely that a bomb squad found the explosion and set it off themselves
  • the people who run the marathon have called the explosions a bomb, but NOTHING has been confirmed by the police
  • 22 people have been injured and 2 people have been confirmed dead— injuries are severe and include loss of limbs in some cases
  • yes, there was a fire in a wing of the jfk library that occurred almost immediately after the explosions were set off, but no one knows if they incidents connected yet
  • the victims have started arriving at the hospital and are being treated for their injuries now
  • the train and most streets are being closed off
  • the fbi is on its way to the site of the explosion right now
  • the president HAS been notified of the explosion 
  • if you live in/near boston, please just stay as far away from the explosion site as you can and allow people to do their jobs. if you have family in the area that you’re worried about, call them rather than going down to check on them.
  • a reliable feed for those who don’t live in boston can be found here

***UPDATE: it was confirmed that the explosions were homemade bombs
