UPDATE: President Obama made a statement from the White House press room regarding the Boston Marathon explosions on Monday.
“The American people will say a prayer for Boston tonight,” Obama said. “We don’t yet have all the answers, but we do know multiple people have been wounded, some gravely, in explosions at the Boston Marathon … We still do not know who did this, or why. People shouldn’t jump to conclusions before we have all the facts. But make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this. We will find out who did this and we will find out why they did this. Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice … we will hold them accountable.”
Obama notably avoided describing the bombings (video below) as a terrorist attack.
Some broadcast news telecasts outside of prime-time have been extended. Also, NBC will preempt Revolution for an NBC News special report with Brian Williams at 10 p.m. ET
