Genocide commemoration in Massachusetts cancelled as hunt for Boston Marathon bomber continues

The Armenian Genocide Commemoration event that was to be held at the Massachusetts State House on April 19 has been cancelled, the Armenian Weekly reports.

On April 19, residents of Watertown woke up to a state of emergency, with SWAT (Special Weapons And Tactics ) teams going door to door searching for one of the suspects of the Boston Marathon bombings.

The suspect, identified today as 19-year-old Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev of Cambridge, went on a violent rampage together with the second suspect—identified now as his brother, 26-year-old Tamerlane—terrorizing Cambridge and Watertown.

The brothers are believed to be the suspects of the Boston Marathon bombings, which occurred on April 15 and took the lives of three and injured over 160 others.
