Boston Police said two people were killed and more than 100 are being treated,  when a pair of bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

The blasts shattered the end of the race Monday, sending authorities out on the course to carry away the injured while stragglers in the 26.2 mile race were rerouted away from the smoking site.

One runner said he saw at least two dozen people with very serious injuries, including missing limbs. Competitors and race volunteers were in tears as they fled the chaos, and as bloody spectators were carried into the medical tent that had been set up to care for fatigued runners.
