Police Safely Blow Up Suspicious Backpacks Found at Boston Marathon Finish Line

US

The police department has tweeted asking people to avoid the area while the bomb squad investigates.

BOSTON (AP) -- Survivors, first responders and relatives of those killed in the Boston Marathon bombing marked the anniversary Tuesday with tributes that combined sorrow over the loss of innocent victims with pride over the city's resilience in the face of a terror attack.

"This day will always be hard, but this place will always be strong," former Mayor Thomas Menino told an invitation-only audience of about 2,500 people at the Hynes Convention Center, not far from the finish line, where two pressure cooker bombs hidden in backpacks killed three people and injured more than 260 others a year ago.
