That deadspin link is the main thing I've been looking at.  It's not where I first heard of it, but it's been updated regularly and links to many other sources.

Yeah, I included them in the OP because they're doing a good job with updates. I included a yahoo link just in case someone wanted something more "reputable" (though I trust Deadspin more than most news outlets).

Details coming in.  Two more, un-detonated, devices were found.

 

Whom ever was responsible, was trying to create a kill zone.  The exploded devices were on the same side of the street, at opposite ends of the block.  The additional devices were meant to go off after, during the chaos, trapping and killing more as they ran, and support services rushed in.

 

This was most certainly planned and coordinated.   The devices are set to be triggered by Mobile Devices.  The two un-detonated devices are being dismantled now.  It is unknown if there are more, but the search continues.

 

Although it is not on the Grand Scale of 9/11, it is certainly a horrendous act.

Now they are saying possibly on one other device, un-detonated, has been found.

 

We will obviously have to wait to know all the details.

My prayers go to all involved in this. I think it was a nutjob who wanted to show they didn't need a gun to do something like this. Expect another round of " blame video games" : /


Thanks Asuka424 for the Signature

This is really sad. This is not how our city acts.

This is our holiday and this crap has to happen. Still not sure if this an attack. They believe it was some butt head that did it.

I just left Boston about an hour after this happened. Wonder if Bruins game is cancelled tonight.

For now, the B's front office is saying the Game has been canceled.  Best decision they have made this year so far.
