Boston Marathons Explosions Being Investigated As Terrorism
Posted: 17 April, 2013
WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama says the explosions at the Boston Marathon are being investigated as an act of terror, although authorities still don’t know who is responsible.
He called the bombings “a heinous and cowardly act” used to target innocent civilians. Obama spoke to reporters after a briefing by his national security team. He is ordering flags at all government buildings to be flown at half-staff in honor of the victims. Gov. Dave Heineman also ordered that flags in Nebraska be flown at half-staff.
