UPDATE:

Boston police say three people were killed and more than 144 people were hurt when a pair of bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

The blasts shattered the end of the race Monday, sending authorities out on the course to carry away the injured while stragglers in the 26.2-mile race were rerouted away from the smoking site.


A pair of explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon have injured at least a half-dozen people, according to witnesses. Television footage showed smoke rising from the scene. The race goes from Hopkinton to Boston, with the finish line in front of the public library.
