London Marathon to proceed, but security being reviewed

LONDON - The London Marathon will definitely go ahead on Sunday but security is being scrutinized, organizers said, after explosions near the finish line of the Boston race killed at least three people and wounded more than 100.

The Boston blasts appeared to go off near where spectators stood behind roadside barriers. One runner was seen collapsing to the ground as he heard the blasts. It was the worst bombing on U.S. soil since security was tightened after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and President Barack Obama promised to hunt down whoever was responsible for the attack.
