Boston officials say there has been a "third incident" at the JFK Library but are not sure if it is related to the two other explosions.

I hope it's just paranoia.

Holy sh*t, i've just seen a picture of a bloke in a wheelchair with both his legs stripped of skin and showing pure bone and tendons, poor fella.

Edit: Mobile phone services shutdown to prevent remote explosions.

@ Typhus, dude, you're not making a lot of sense. Sure it would've been @ JFK library because it would be crowded around it, not because of symbolism!! Don't you think?

I disagree. Given the significance of a library as a centre of education, civilization and philosophy - it's entirely possible to imagine such an institution being targeted on purely ideological grounds by people of a certain political/religious persuasion.

Whoever did this is overly f*cked up the head.

Honestly, you're both right. Its the Boston Marathon. Tourists would probably be checking out JFK while they are in town plus as Typhus pointed out... center of education, etc and so fourth. Not that it matters much. I honestly hope this Saudi national they have in custody is the guy that is actually responsible, or at least a guy that knows who is. I'd hate for this just to be some convenience grab for the sake of trying to look competent on the part of the police.

This is bad.

Reports of Marathon Runners that crossed finish line and continued to run to Mass General Hospital to give blood to victims

Well at least faith in humanity restored a little bit............

I agree with you, it's certainly a valid angle, i'm just not getting the feeling it applies here. Who knows, really.

I doubt if it's been suspended, keeping in mind that the authorities have just not long provided contact numbers for families and for tips, the cellular service is probably overwhelmed, with those contact numbers and people generally trying to contact people directly.

Read about this 2 hours ago the second after it was first seen.. really sucks hope everyone is okay including the old man that fell right after the bomb went off next to him. It's extremely sad knowing there are still people out there like this.

As a New Yorker I hope everyone in Boston is safe and sound

Just found this video of the second bomb,

I just heard it on the news, phone service is down to prevent remote detonations.

I wish the news media would stop showing the f*ckin' bombing footage. The last thing people need right now is more panic.

Phone services are usually suspended during disasters and incidents such as these so they don't overload emergency services. Emergency numbers such as 911 are not affected.

Injured confirmed over 100. Death toll only covers confirmed deaths by hospitals, after being brought in.

The suspended cellular service is confirmed to be to prevent remote detonations.

I hope they televise the execution of the person/people who did this, then at least the victims can get some compensation. It is just sickening to attack civilians because they live in a country that other people disagree with. Innocent people died and lost limbs on a holiday in Boston. Just f*cking awful

I think I read somewhere that 2 people died while 100 were injured
