Three killed in Boston blasts; No information about Armenians

The Armenian Ministry of Foreign affairs possesses no information about whether any Armenians have suffered as a result of the twin blasts in Boston.

The Armenian Embassy in Washington keeps in touch with the authorities of Massachusetts and the Boston municipality, Press Service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reported.

Bombings killed three people, injured scores and sent smoke and flame soaring near the Boston Marathon’s finish line, triggering an FBI investigation into what authorities described as an act of terror.

The explosions near Copley Square occurred as recreational runners were finishing about 2:50 p.m. local time yesterday, police said.

At least 128 people were hospitalized and as many as eight were in critical condition, officials said. Among the dead was an 8-year-old boy, the Boston Globe reported.
