    All the Boston TV stations are broadcasting the scene live now (from the street and over head helicopters) . WBZ, had been broadcasting the event live all day, has video of the 2 explosions, as they occured.

    Boston now reporting that dozens of people were injured, 2 dead, by two explosions near the Boston Marathon finish line. There are multiple reports of victims with missing limbs, bloodied heads and other extremely serious injuries. WBZ-4 reported at least a dozen victims with "grave injuries."

     

    Also the 2 bombs that exploded were in trash receptacles and an unexploded bomb has been found. Federal officials also have surveillance photos of a man putting a backpack in trash can just prior to explosion.

    Thoughts and prayers go out to those involved.

     

    Why are some stocks bouncing back after hours?
    Such a strange situation.

    Is North Korea just about the most nervous nation on earth right now? I can see them crawling over each other rushing to the Swedish embassy to say they had nothing to do with it.
