BOSTON (AP) - People in Boston and other cities are observed a moment of silence for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings one week after the explosions.
Two bombs exploded at 2:50 p.m. a week ago Monday as runners were crossing the finish line about four hours into the Boston Marathon. Three people were killed and more than 200 were injured. Many lost limbs.
At the statehouse in Boston, lawmakers took a break to gather outside and remember.
One of the suspected bombers died after a shootout with police and the other has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction to kill.
