From what I read the police supposedly have a person of interest in protective custody, could be not related. Turns out, they don't have anyone, yet.

I too hope all is well with yer Sister in law Blurf.

TPM said this on a suspect:

Boston police commissioner Edward Davis denied reports a suspect is being held after the bombing at the Boston Marathon.

"Those reports are not true, there is no suspect in custody," Davis said at a press conference.

The FBI's national press office declined to comment when asked by TPM whether a suspect or person of interest had been identified.

We have heard from her--she's ok. Actually if you see the news pics of a kid being pushed in a wheelchair by an emergency official, she's standing on the right side of the wheelchair in the pic (dressed in all black looking down into a smartphone). There are family members who are in surgery right now however.

I also hope the 23 (as reported here) quickly and fully recover.

No report on who did it or why.

The 23 have grown from there to about 141 last I read/heard, the dead are a senior citizen and an 8 year old child. Sadness all around.

Edit: The death toll has now risen from 2 to 3. :(

Blurf, praying for your family members who are (or were) in surgery, may they have a speedy and complete recovery.



And obviously the same goes for all the rest of the injured.

It's also a dark day for France today and for me quite particularly.
That the victims can rest in peace.
All the support of the Brigade du Cosmos, of France and the french people to all the families of the victims of this heinous attack.
All our thoughts also go to the citizens of the city of Boston and to the Americans.
E pluribus unum.

Below the communiqué of our President for the attention of the Americans, the victims and the families.

In the UK it is being reported as the worst mainland atrocity since 9/11. I send my sincere condolences to those injured and their families.
