At least two people have been killed and up to 60 people have been injured after two large bombs went off near the finish line of the famous Boston Marathon today, leaving behind a scene of unimaginable carnage.
However, law enforcement sources told the New York Post that 12 people had been killed, but Boston police have only confirmed two. The sources added that the first explosion happened at the Fairmont Hotel.
Eyewitnesses at the scene said there were two loud explosions about five seconds apart, and emergency vehicles crowded the scene.
Witness Dave Weigel said via Twitter minutes after the explosion: ‘I saw people’s legs blown off. Horrific. Two explosions. Runners were coming in and saw unspeakable horror.'
Police told the Boston Globe that are they still finding 'secondary devices,' and pleading with anyone still in the area to leave at once. A controlled explosion was set for outside the city library.
