Marathon organizers confirmed on Facebook that two bombs exploded near the finish line and they are working with authorities.  The race was suspended and the 26.2-mile course evacuated.

Video from the scene shows shattered glass littering the sidewalk, with numerous people with bloody injuries laying just behind security barriers that line the street.
