• Terror Attack in Boston

      Terror hits one of America's most famous cities.

      Three are dead and more than 140 people injured after two bombs exploded at the close of the Boston Marathon. We still don't know who is behind the attacks or how extensive the plans were, but there are reports several more explosive devices were found. The White House is calling it terrorism and President Obama says whoever is responsible will "feel the full weight of justice."

      Boston police have made a point of saying they do not have a suspect in custody. There was reportedly a search of a town near Boston called Revere. The FBI is taking charge of the criminal investigation. Let's be extremely careful of speculation.

      Other U.S. cities remain on high alert including New York and Washington.

      There is a news conference at the Westin Copley Plaza this morning. Hopefully we will learn new details.
