Hi Richard, I think it is well too early to say whether any of these incidents are linked. However, the old adage springs to mind, once is coincidence, twice is happenstance and three times is enemy action! I am sure we will learn what has been happening later. The significance of FBI & HS attendance is telling. Again, this could be due to the fact that explosives have been used but my own view is that there is some suspicion of a 'terrorist' involvement for both agencies to be involved. All conjecture at the moment but what is sure, poor old Boston is having a busy time!
Hi Barçamad, I'm with you here. It's far to soon to know the circumstances attached to the events over the past 5 or 6 days.
It's a case of wait and see what emerges, rather than speculate.
As you say, poor Boston and area are really suffering.

At the end of the day, Richard, we, the onlookers, are not a priority. Already 'jump the gun' reporting has got out to the public about an arrest for the marathon incident. This sort of thing only sows confusion, i.e. are the authorities being upfront with us? Is that so important at this stage? I don't think so. The people who have suffered, the families of those killed, of those injured are important. What is more important is that the perpetrators are dealt with. I am grateful for the fact that we Brits aren't being bombed and blasted for a change.........at the moment that is. Also out of this tragedy, it may bring some perspective to those, particularly in Boston & New York who have wholeheartedly supported this form of terrorism in the past. What is clear that such acts are vile no matter who is behind them. There, got that off my chest.
the London Marathon is still going ahead tomorrow and for everyone who enters the race £2 is going to be given to victims of the Boston tragedy.

Guys n gals, Sky now report the Boston police commissioner as saying that one of the suspects wh escaped in the shoot out is suspected to be one of the marathon bombers. Big manhunt underway. All I can say at the moment, is well done US authorities. Let us hope that they can bring this to a swift and firm conclusion.
