Bombing at the Boston Marathon - Updated
[CBS News photo]
Breaking news so not going to say much as it will be well covered and there's always so much misinformation in the initial confusion. What's clear is two bombs went off at the Boston Marathon a little while ago. Hearing one of them was at Mile Marker 26 which had been dedicated to the Newtown victims. Trying not to jump to conclusions about the symbolism in that.
Clearly going to be a lot injuries. Local TV reporter reported to be sobbing at the scene. And this tweet seems legit, so some serious injuries.
@JackieBrunoNECN: I saw people's legs blown off. Horrific. Two explosions. Runners were coming in and saw unspeakable horror.Also this photo showing some serious blood on the sidewalk. Hearing reports there may still be unexploded devices in the area. Just horrible. A curse on the soulless perps who would ruin this tradition and hurt innocent people.
Update: Boston.com has a live blog going. Probably as reliable a source as you're going to get in the instant confusion. Reports just keep getting worse. Too horrible for words.
Update two: Been glued to the interwebs all afternoon. Only good news is, everyone I know personally who was likely to be there has checked in and is safe.
