Fear and tragedy filled America yesterday when bombs exploded at the finish line of the annual Boston Marathon. It's reported that three people have been killed, including an 8-year-old boy and 140 people injured as a result of the attack.
President Barack Obama vows to hunt those responsible for the attack: "We will find out who did this. We'll find out why they did this."
He continues: "Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice."
With shock of the tragic news, celebrities shared their love and prays to Boston with comments on Twitter...
