(Before It's News)

Causalities continue to mount after a twin set of terrorist bombings killed at least 12 people dead, including an 8-year-old child and over 100 injured at the 2013 Boston Marathon hours ago.

President Obama is set to address the nation live at 6:10 pm eastern on the situation. This is a developing story, updates will posted at the bottom at the story.

The first bomb, caught live on camera in the video below, went off around 2:10 pm EST near the finish line hours after the first runners completed the marathon.

Highlights

At least 12 are reported dead and over 100 hundred are reported to be injured according to the latest reports.

The twin terrorist bombings happened at approximately 2:50 PM with police reporting two more undetonated devices have been discovered that are being dismantled.

The NY Post also confirms that 12 people are dead adding that police are guarding a suspect who is a Saudi national and is covered in shrapnel wounds, apparently having injured himself during the course of detonating the bombs.

Boston.com describes a horrific scene, reporting there is “blood everywhere” with first responderers attending to people missing limbs.

Two sites have been set up by the Red Cross and Google to help find people in the area, including the 27,000 runners at the event.

Authorities have a identified a suspect, a Saudi national, who is currently being guarded in a Boston hospital with shrapnel wounds.

Updates:

The TYT report DHS officials are saying the attacks where coordinated.

Peirs Morgan from CNN now is reporting at least 110 injured including 8 children and an 8-year-old among the dead.

From The Atlantic Wire:

The Boston Marathon’s Final Mile Was Dedicated to Newtown Victims

Adding further heartbreak to utter tragedy, the last mile of Monday’s Boston Marathon, which was rocked by at least two explosions resulting in an unknown number of injuries and casualties Monday afternoon, was dedicated to the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting massacre. Boston Athletic Association president Joanne Flaminio said before the race that had a “special significance” because it was 26.2 miles long and there was 26 victims in the Newtown attack. There was also a group of Newtown parents running as part of a group called Team Newtown Strong who were raising money for local charities. A banner honoring the victims, hung at the end of the 26th mile, can be seen in the photo above.

WCVB reports:

FAA orders no-fly zone over Boston explosion site

The Federal Aviation Administration is warning pilots that it has created a no-fly zone over the site of two explosions at the annual Boston marathon.

The agency said in a notice issued Monday about an hour after the explosions that a no-fly zone with a 3.5-mile radius has been created over 811 Boylston St.

There are multiple sources reporting that a bomb drill was being conducted:

Eyewitness: Authorities Announced “Drill” Before Boston Explosions

An eyewitness to the two explosions at the Boston Marathon today said that a “drill” was repeatedly announced before the bombs exploded and that he “thought it was odd” bomb sniffing dogs were in place before the blast.

University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15 News, “They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about. “It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill.”

The news station also reports that Stevenson “thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.”

And this:

Boston marathon bombing happened on same day as ‘controlled explosion’ drill by Boston bomb squad

What’s not yet being reported by the mainstream media is that a “controlled explosion” was under way on the same day as the marathon explosion.

As the Boston Globe tweeted today, “Officials: There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities.”

Some people believe this explosion might have been part of the demolition of another bomb. It seems unlikely, however, that a bomb at the library, one mile away, could be so quickly located and rigged to be exploded by the bomb squad in less than one hour following the initial explosions at the marathon.

More updates shortly:

  • So this proves gun control is useless and just restricts second amendments rights of law abiding citizens. Because crazy people can be crafty, they have trouble getting a gun, then they will make a bomb or poisonous gas etc. So wake up America, tell these gun phobia nuts to take a hike!

  • this is just one more false flag with more to come–being implemented by our own gov’t/tptb to bring in this NWO, a total loss of freedom. anyone still in the dark about what has/is/will happen are a lost cause at this point. It is right in ones face if one is awake.

    today the crash of the precious metals markets and anniversary of the Federal reserve/IRS

    they are taking away our money, our rights, our food (GMO/weather control/warfare), our water rights, our guns and finally our lives. this is the agenda and it is speeding up. many, especially the “educated” liberals are falling right in line and just as in past history helping to cut their own throats as will as everyone else’s. all need to wake up and not be taken in by the rumors and main stream media BS.

  • Senseless, absolutely senseless.

  • I am thinking obama and his goons can spin this towards mental illness. I am predicting this will be another mentally ill person. This should make the prezz put more focus towards mental illness and how people with mental illness should be watched closer, restrict more of their rights, etc.

    :idea:

  • A bomb in a trash can at the finish-line of the Boston Marathon. How could the cracker-jack Boston PD have not anticipated an explosive device in a such a blatantly obvious spot?

  • Where do you get 12..all the news says 3 so far…Fill this in for us.

    • A federal law enforcement source told The Post there are at least 12 dead and at least 132 people have been treated at seven area hospitals :cool: He was right !

      • wizard

        wrong.
        2 dead
        DOZENS injured.

      • Screen Name

        Everyone knows that the feds can’t count. They are ignorant when it comes to numbers. Look at the deficit they have created for us.

  • wizard

    FBI con job

  • The main blast image above looks to me like a set-up. Lots of paper which should have been shredded and holed but where’s the shredded clothes, the plastic bottles and broken sunglasses, the shoulder bags, the caps, the phones, the blood-spray away from the blast? Some blood patterns don’t look natural because only real blood can produce real blood spatter.
    Also the image of one blast shows a lot of flame but usually explosives don’t produce flame, just a huge smoke-filled “crump”. Typically Hollywood produces flames for visual effect by using petrol and unless a source like petrol or gas was nearby to be ignited by the blast it was likely included to show up better on camera. Otherwise it would just look like a billow of smoke moving out.
