New York Post has reported that at least 12 people are
dead and over 100 injured including up to 15 with amputated
limbs after two bombs ripped through the finish line of
the Boston Marathon.
Police and FBI were guarding a person of interest at a local hospital,
according to a New York Post report confirmed by Fox
News. The person, who sources said was 20 years old, had severe
burns, but authorities had not determined whether the person was
a victim or a perpetrator. Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis

related to the earlier explosions.

was analyzing video from several area surveillance cameras.

that will likely require amputations.
Witnesses heard booms that sounded like two claps of thunder near
the finish line inside the Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel, according
