    One of the dead is an 8 year old girl. What a tragedy.

    Like I say, if you asked me to bet about it, I'd bet I'm wrong, since the facts are probably not what they appear to be at this moment.
    NY Post was reporting earlier it was a 20 year old Saudi national in custody. My guess would be more likely an MIT or Harvard student gone nuts than a homegrown terrorist.

    Yeah, but right after that the Mayor and Governor said, very directly that those reports are wrong and that no one is in custody.

    I don't believe anyone is currently in custody - I do believe it's been reported that the police are guarding one of the victims in hospital, which likely indicates that he has been identified in some way as a "suspect".

    If it's terrorism, shouldn't take long before someone in a cave sends a tape to Al Jezeera claiming responsibility.

    Looks like they've apprehended a Saudi National per Drudge

    Edit> I guess some beat me to it, but is anyone surprised?

    I don't know - do you think Timothy McVeigh would have sent a tape to Al Jazeera?

    I know it's not the issue today and I'm not trying to be crass, just curious, but did anyone notice if the markets crashed before or after the bombs went off?

    According to NBC, "No suspect in custody, but some people are being questioned, including a young person here on a student visa"

    Re: Explosions reported near finish line at Boston Marathon

    NY Post seems unrelenting in its casualty claims and other details and isn't backing down from its stories. But so far after several hours no one seems to have confirmed anything from them. Anyone know what the deal is? Anyone else reporting higher casualty figures?
