Here we go:

http://zeenews.india.com/news/world/twin-bombings-at-boston-marathon-kill-three-more-than-100-injured_842445.html

World is becoming unsafe day by day.

Up till now it were Eastern or African countries mostly. But not the waves are going to the peaceful West too.

Who is behind these bombings?

Salafi al-Qaida ..... OR .... someone other crazy person?

Crazy people normally go to the use of rifles only, but these bombings normally could only be done by expert terrorists.

What will be the reaction of US if it is found to be al-Qaida terrorists?

It is sure an explosion made by amatures.compressed black powder will create more pressure than this and you will see people fly.Nothing moved here.It was probably in a bag.

btw,the pic shows the second explosion.The first was at the finish line far ahead near the flags.Some media outlets still show one explosion.

I think it's too early to suspect anyone, let's not fall into the paranoia and directly blames some community.

The voice of reason speaks! ^.^

Yes, this does look like the work of an intelligent amateur, but that hardly narrows it down much, and it's far too early to speculate, especially since the choice of target doesn't give much to go on.
People of in all sorts of groups and from all kinds of motivations can fall into the 'intelligent amateur' category.

Authorities investigating the deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon have zeroed in on a man seen on surveillance video near the site of the attack.

Sources say investigators are trying to identify a person described as a young white man who is standing in the crowd near the scene of the second bombing just before the device exploded, reported CBS News correspondent Bob Orr. A surveillance camera at a nearby Lord and Taylor department store captured images of the man who was carrying a backpack and talking on a cell phone.

The man was wearing a black jacket, a grey hooded sweatshirt and a white or off-white baseball cap backwards. He is 6 feet or 6-feet-2-inches tall with a medium build.

Investigators say the man, who seemed to be alone, put the backpack on the ground. Then, when the first explosion occurred at the finish line about 100 yards down Boylston Street, he took off. Just a few seconds later, the second bomb exploded near where the man had been standing.

Investigators now are going through cell phone logs to determine who made calls from that location near the time of the explosions. Sources say the FBI is working with a list of names of cell phone owners and attempting to match one of those to the unknown man on the surveillance

Sources say forensic experts tape will attempt to use facial recognition software and compare the images from the surveillance camera to photo IDs connected to known cell phone users. Officials say so far they have not identified that mystery man and they're not yet calling him a suspect.

CBS News senior correspondent John Miller said that the big case Wednesday was whether to make the case to release that photo and go out and say this is the person who is being sought or to hold that back.

"It's been a tough call," said Miller. "For investigators, there's always a difficult choice because if the person doesn't know you're looking for him, he may stay in place, you may catch up to him. if he does know you're looking for him, he may run. On the other hand, if you don't get him, it's always great to enlist 20 million or so more eyes in the public who may be able to give you a location right away. That's not going to happen tonight anymore. It was going to happen earlier -- they've rethought that. It may happen with the release of that picture tomorrow. They're reassessing.

Meanwhile, investigators have found the lid of a pressure cooker that apparently was catapulted onto the roof of a nearby building, a law enforcement source said Wednesday.

The law enforcement source confirmed to CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton Wednesday that the lid was found on the top of a building near the attack site.

The developments come after an intelligence bulletin issued to law enforcement and obtained by The Associated Press and the Reuters news agency late Tuesday included pictures of a mangled pressure cooker, a torn black bag, a circuit board and a battery connected to wires, all of which the bulletin said were from the two bombs used in the attack.

The blasts killed 8-year-old Martin Richard, of Boston, and 29-year-old Krystle Campbell, of Medford, Mass. On Wednesday, CBS News confirmed that the third fatality has been identified as Lu Lingzi, a 23-year-old graduate student at Boston University from Shenyang, China.

Third Boston fatality: Graduate student Lu Lingzi

Both explosive devices appear to have been placed in sealable metal pots called pressure cookers and packed with nails and ball bearings designed to amplify the damage from the explosions, Orr previously reported.

Investigators believe the bombs were hidden in black nylon backpacks and housed inside the pressure cookers. Pressure-cooker bombs can help boost the power of relatively small devices by briefly constraining the blast. When the cookers do explode, they can add large chunks of metal to the shrapnel spray.

The improvised explosive devices have been popular with terrorists. Al Qaeda published a how-to recipe in an online jihad magazine. Several of the bombs were used in the 2006 attack on trains in Mumbai, India. Pressure cooker explosives have been recommended for lone-wolf operatives by al Qaeda's branch in Yemen.

The FBI and other law enforcement agencies repeatedly pleaded for members of the public to come forward with photos, videos or anything suspicious they might have seen or heard.

"The range of suspects and motives remains wide open," Richard DesLauriers, FBI agent in charge in Boston, said at a news conference Tuesday. He vowed to "go to the ends of the Earth to identify the subject or subjects who are responsible for this despicable crime."

President Obama branded the attack an act of terrorism but said officials don't know "whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist organization, foreign or domestic, or was the act of a malevolent individual."

Mr. Obama plans to attend an interfaith service Thursday in the victims' honor in Boston. He has traveled four times to cities reeling from mass violence, most recently in December after the schoolhouse shooting in Newtown, Conn.

Heightening jitters in Washington, where security already had been tightened after the bombing, the Secret Service quarantined a suspicious letter addressed to Mr. Obama that is being tested for the toxin ricin, CBS News learned Wednesday.

Third suspicious letter, addressed to Obama, may contain ricin

On Tuesday, a letter addressed to a senator and initially tested positive for ricin was intercepted at a mail facility outside the capital, lawmakers said.

There was no indication either episode was related to the Boston attack. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday's letter was addressed to Republican Sen. Roger Wicker, of Mississippi.

FBI appeals for videos, photos of Boston bombings

In Boston, scores of victims remained in hospitals, many with grievous injuries, after the twin explosions near the marathon's finish line killed the three people, wounded more than 170 and reawakened fears of terrorism. A 9-year-old girl and 10-year-old boy were among 17 victims listed in critical condition.

DesLauriers confirmed that investigators had found pieces of black nylon from a bag or backpack and fragments of BBs and nails, possibly contained in a pressure cooker. He said the items were sent to the FBI laboratory at Quantico, Va., for analysis.

The FBI said it is looking at what a Boston television station said are photos sent by a viewer that show the scene right before and after the bombs went off. One photo shows something next to a mailbox that appears to be a bag, but it's unclear what the significance is.

"We're taking a look at hundreds of photos, and that's one of them," FBI spokesman Jason Pack said.

Investigators said they haven't determined what was used to set off the explosives.

DesLauriers said there had been no claim of responsibility for the attack.

He urged people to come forward with anything suspicious, such as hearing someone express an interest in explosives or a desire to attack the marathon, seeing someone carrying a dark heavy bag at the race or hearing mysterious explosions recently.

"Someone knows who did this," the FBI agent said.

The bombs exploded 10 or more seconds apart, tearing off victims' limbs and spattering streets with blood, instantly turning the festive race into a hellish scene of confusion, horror and heroics.

Doctors who treated the wounded corroborated reports that the bombs were packed with shrapnel intended to cause mayhem.

"We've removed BBs, and we've removed nails from kids. One of the sickest things for me was just to see nails sticking out of a little girl's body," said Dr. David Mooney, director of the trauma center at Boston Children's Hospital.

Dr. Peter Burke, chief trauma surgeon at Boston Medical Center, said Wednesday that the hospital performed seven amputations on bombing patients. He said a large volume of fragments pulled from the victims were sent to the pathologist and available for police to review.

Burke said two of the hospital's patients, including a 5-year-old child, remain in critical condition. He said he expects both to survive but "until they are home, I won't be satisfied."

i think al-queda is behind on this bombings.

Some says its north korea but its not true since north korea are not terrorist they are communist country. there is a big difference in terrorist doing and communist doings.

For sure this case will soon know the accountability on this acts.

I honestly think it's just a homegrown act of terrorism, similar to a school shooting.

I agree with this and it was my thinking when I first read the article. Immediately jumping to "It's an act of terrorism" is a little premature and could completely skew the investigation into the incident. They should just take their time and look at the scene, gather evidence and witness statements and see where that takes you. Maybe there's a group of US citizens who really don't like marathons, I don't know. I would think the making of the bomb might tell them something, what was used to make it, where someone might go to acquire those items. Maybe it will just lead them to some kid's basement.

Though still the reasons are unknown the suspects (which are almost 100% sure the ones that did it) are already known.

You seems to be a kind hearted lady.

I don't know if the suspects are terrorists or not, but I could only tell you that Terrorists does exist in my land, I see them on daily bases, and if they get a chance, they will slaughter each & every US citizen, woman and child without showing a mercy for a second.

This is very unfortunate story of my country, but this is the truth.

Actually they are killing own landsmen Pakistani citizen, women and children on regular bases (while they do not agree with their Religious Extremism), but their enmity and hate towards the Western civilization is 100 times more.

2 Incidents of Hate, which I can never forget


It was the day of 11 September, when I saw the poor people falling in the air in order to escape the fire.

I was in Germany at that time. In evening, we went to the Pakistani Center (which was attached to the Pakistani Mosque). Then Imam (priest) of the mosque came, and the people explained him to what happened.

And that Imam of Mosque said: Shukar al-Hamdollillah (i.e Thanks God) .... They (the Mujahideen) are already late. The should have done this attack long time ago.

I was unable to believe my ears. This was the moment I felt hate against the religion too.

The worst part was this that the people who were present there, they also said "Shukar al-hamdolillah", and they were happy with joy and they congratulated each other (except for few who were really upset upon it, including myself).


2nd Incident:

Again next week (in Germany) sitting in a Pakistani party. And one of them telling the interview of the "Lady Instructor" in the school where those terrorists got training.

She told that we put the most importance upon "take off" and "Landing" of aeroplane. But those Arab Students were absolutely not interested in take off or landing lessons, but they asked repeatedly to tell only how move the plane up & down and right and left.

Once again, I saw a lot of people were laughing and cheering it up and saying Well Done you Arab Mujahideen.


So people.... be careful. The majority of my country men may be sane, but a very very big numbers of them has been brain washed and no more able to think rationally. They will follow the Mullahs blindly.

Looks as though one of the suspects have been killed and another on the loose. There is not much on them yet, but looks as though they are "local" terrorists, i.e. they have lived in the US for a few years.

Muslim is behind most of the the terrorist attacks in the world.
It is not exceptional in this case.

Keep tolerating this sick religion and you'll see more of these attacks on American soil.

I dont know what to say upon this remarks. Perhaps, we Muslims are ourselves responsible for this. But I still feel sad for my religion and my nation.

Moreover, a religious leader in Pakistan gave a statement that the nation should declare this Boston terrorist as the "Son of the Nation", the same way we declared the "Aafia Saddiqui" as the daughter of the nation.

All these things started happening in the last 30 years in Pakistan and the Islamic World. The modern means of communications have proved helpful for the Extremists to propagate their teachings.

How can the Police Department say justice has won when there hasn't been a court case yet? The guy is in custody, and I'd hope he will be treated innocent until PROVEN guilty. Then after that I'd say justice has been done.

I agree. He's a suspect. It doesn't mean they are responsible but that there is something that may loosely link them to the bombings. Until they've been to court and have presented their evidence (assuming they have enough to go to court or even hold them) then I'm not really convinced. I think it's disappointing the police would behave in such a manner. They seem to be jumping to the conclusion and showing a biased opinion. If they're wrong it looks bad on them and the fire they've been fueling with their words may get out of control.

And you are right, but apparently things are not going to be like this. I was watching the whole chase thing yesterday night and it looked like the guy was being treated like a real menace. I think they even mentioned that his rights weren't read (you have the right to remain silent and so on) when he was finally arrested. From what I could gather, when the policemen are in danger they can read his rights later or something like that.

Well, people want to blame someone and if this guy is not guilty I'm sure he'll be the scape goat.

Keep tolerating? As opposed to what?
Make the religion illegal? Deport/kill them all and refuse entry to any new ones?

Yeah, I'm sure policies like that would be great for reducing the number of terrorist attacks.
