Lunacy.

Scared to click some on the links on Twitter - horrendous scenes.

For anyone concerned about individuals, chip updates are still working so you can see where they last checked in.

Awful news. US news are saying bombs but no fatalities yet ? Let's hope that's true.

So sad for everyone concerned.

Can't stop watching the rolling news, it's awful.

Hard to imagine there won't be dead, limbs were reported "flying".  Can't see how you get that without fatalities.

Absolutely awful to see, utterly depressing.

Tragic.  Pointless.

Awful news.

It's horrible and sickening, however they have targeted Boston because sport has always been a target. It's about a lot of people contained in an area, in a culture of enjoyment, so off their guard and relaxed. Research even to a very basic level of the history of sport, shows the potential to make it political. Google the history of the Modern Olympics...

Horrible. If they are targetting the majors, fuck them it makes me more determined to go to London next weekend. (I'm glad my family is staying at home though)

Could have been worse too - 2 unexploded devices made safe.
