Boston Bomb

Monday's bomb at the close of the Boston Marathon has left a trail of destruction. While fatalities were lower than might have been expected from a device exploding in the midst of a crowd of people injuries have been horrific with many amputations reported.

The double blast was captured live on cameras covering the marathon as many runners converged on the finishing line, a natural point for spectators to gather.

Boston is a city with strong Irish roots and current connections. There has been much to share between Bostonians and Dubliners over recent centuries. Now they have the unsolicited shared grief and devastation brought by no-warning bombers whose sole purpose was to target with their devices civilians going about their daily business.

The aftermath of a bomb attack in Dublin in May 1974 which claimed many innocent lives.
