DEVELOPING: The Boston Marathon headquarters has been locked down after two explosions were reported near the finish line, a spokesman told Reuters.

Witnesses reportedly heard two booms near the finish line inside the Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel that sounded like two claps of thunder.

The Associated Press says there are reports of injuries.

Yeah, a coworker just let a few of us know, we went into our break room which has two TV's, one on CNN and one on FOX (not kidding, had to keep everyone happy), and I would say this is not a coincidence and/or an accident based on what they were saying and showing. Only time will tell, but this definitely comes off as deliberate to me.

As far as I'm concerned, yes, whomever is responsible, they're out to cause fear, which is the definition of a terror attack.

Doesn't matter what individual or group is responsible, it's a terrorist attack.

More senseless violence. Absolutely pathetic and disgusting that someone feels the need to do this.

Holy S**T. In one of the images posted you can see a guy missing almost all of one of his legs. This is ... just completely woah. Damn. I have no idea how anyone can justify letting off bombs especially when there are god knows how many people around (if it was a bombing) it's absolutely disgusting.

EDIT: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/two_explosions_at_boston_marathon_iMR0LCkcwASg0RQfVsH1yI Apparently the Death Toll is now at 12.... This is horrifying.

IDK. That's why I'm asking this question. This isn't 2001 like the last time we were attacked. Information is more quickly exchanged.

Is it possible that it was a leaking gas line that caused the explosion? I don't want to draw conclusions that someone intended to do this on purpose until evidence is shown.
