Twin explosions hit Boston Marathon causing deaths and injuries
Dr. Lalit Kishore | 17 Apr 2013

Twin blasts, in Boston during world's oldest marathon, point to home-grown terrorists for the heinous act of ?terror attack' which has been condemned widely. Reportedly, two pressure cooker bombs were triggered near the finishing line when thousands of runners still on the course for the run that killed three and injured over hundred people.

 The videos aired by various channels showed that the two blasts within a few seconds with both the runners and cheerers near the finishing line engulfed by white smoke fleeing in terror. The place turned into a horrific spectacle of shattered glass, barriers, flesh, fallen people, blood and screams. Both, many runners and spectators, could be seen crying and consoling each other while some others fleeing from the scene.

It was seen that immediately after the blasts, ambulances, fire trucks and police vehicles rushed and converged at the scene to help the affected people.

Meanwhile US president Obama has vowed to find out the Boston culprits, nab them and hold them accountable. Obama stated from the White House that those responsible for the act will 'feel the full weight of justice'.

It is being claimed that the forensics analysis by the investigators has provided important leads to identify the culprits.
