The bombs were very obviously homemade... Gun powder, nails, bbs, and a pressure cooker...

Thankfully I live in America where stuff like this rarely happens. They do love to spam the news though.

Prayers for those who were directly affected and those who were witnesses of this horrific act of terrorism.

One bomber killed and they have now surrounded a house in Watertown MA where they must have reason to believe that #2 is hiding. Apparently it's where the car that they hijacked last night is parked. If he's there, I hope it's not a hostage situation!

All of Boston and surrounding towns are in lock down. I received a robo call from work at 06:00 this morning advising me to work from home today since all of public transportation has been shut down.

Unfortunately, an MIT officer was killed last night and another MBTA officer is is serious condition and undergoing surgery at the moment.

Am glued to the tv set watching all of this unfold live

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

It's so sad. I have a bunch of reliable news apps on my IPad and I get notifications when big things happen... It's so tragic how even more lives have been lost. The good thing is that one suspect can not do anymore damage. Stay safe Boston...

I'm from Massachusetts and have been to the Marathon. That area is always so crowded as, most of the media goes there and many book that hotel, years in advance.

It's sad that the world is coming to this. Thankfully, no one I knew (have family and friends that run) were hurt.
