The following is an update from the Boston Globe

Two people were killed and dozens were injured this afternoon as two powerful explosions detonated in quick succession near the Boston Marathon finish line in Boston’s Back Bay section, turning a scene of athletic celebration into bloody chaos.

A third explosion was reported at the John F. Kennedy Library, said Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis. Authorities were treating it as related to the first two.

Two more explosive devices were found and dismantled, The Associated Press reported this afternoon. The Federal Aviation Administration announced a ground stop for Logan International Airport until further notice; it wasn’t clear if the ground stop was related to the blasts.

Asked if the explosions were a result of terrorism, Davis said, “We’re not being definitive on this right now, but you can reach your own conclusions, based on what happened.’

Blood and broken glass covered sidewalks in the area where the blasts occurred just before 3 p.m. in the city’s Back Bay section. Immediately after the explosions, some of the wounded could be seen to have lost limbs; others lay unconscious.
