ONLY 8 YEARS OLD AND MURDERED BY BOSTON MARATHON BOMB TERRORIST – Little Martin Richard was standing with his mother and sister at the finishing line waiting for their father to come running across. All they wanted was to greet him with open arms and yet an unnamed monster and terrorist organisation callously took all the joy away and turn the Boston Marathon into a bloodbath.
Boston Police and the FBI have completely seal the area in order to start their unenviable task of combing through the carnage.
Of the all the victims many have required surgery some of which requires amputations of limbs while other under major corrective surgery to save their limbs and lives.
Not since the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center has the American people felt so vulnerable and this brings home a stark reality that terrorist are prepared to strike anywhere and kill anyone, regardless to age, sex, creed or colour – their hatred has no bounds.
The New York Post is reporting that FBI Agents have arrest a 20 year old Saudi in connection with the bombings but as yet no details are being released by the Federal Authorities.
When President Obama first came to office he offered peace and held out the Olive Branch in an attempt to create a ‘mutual understanding and respect’ and yet it is clear that the terrorists have not only thrown this in the face of the Americans they have shown that there only agenda is violence against the most innocent.
President Obama recently made an announcement that the U.S authorities would spare no resources in tracking those responsible down and holding them accountable.
The terrorist attack in Boston has also have repercussions across the pond as the UK tightens its security with tomorrows funeral of Baroness Thatcher and the word famous London Marathon to be held in just a few days time.
Federal authorities have provided an official statement to CNN that both bombs were small that that there are no signs that C-4 or other such high-grade explosives were used. This would indicate that both were homemade and crude devices.
Local Police and the FBI continue to work together reviewing surveillance footage from CCTV around the area. So far it has uncovered one man carrying two backpacks near the site of detonation but at this point authorities are refusing to say whether they feel this person was in fact the bomber.
As news reports continue to come in information appears to be in disarray as some report a person has been taken into custody while others, including the Boston Police, are denying that anyone has been arrested so far.
Tonight we will all be praying for those who lost their lives in this senseless act of violence and for those who are fighting for their lives tonight.
