    wow, raw footage is incredible on a tragic level. I know camera guys are just doing their jobs, but it makes me sick to see all these people needing help while he just stands there taking it all in for the rest of us to rubberneck.

    I assume that the large red splotches are blood, if the bombs are removing limbs (like they would).

    This will be a terrible story.

    If they found an undetonated device, there is a good chance they can move fast on any intel they can muster on it. I would hope that they don't just take it and detonate it somewhere. I'd expect fingerprints on that since it wasn't supposed to survive a blast.

    Disgusting. Hoping the best for the victims and the worst for the cowardly ****s that do stuff like this.

    They aren't ruling out an accident but you'd have to think it was deliberate if there were two separate explosions, it was during a high profile event, and they found devices. Some people...

    If you're smart enough to build the bomb, you're smart enough to not leave fingerprints on it in case something goes wrong.

    I believe the construction of the bomb can yield very valuable clues about who made it too.

    If you're dumb enough to build a bomb that doesn't explode you're dumb enough to leave fingerprints on it.
