  • BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: Boston is a tough and resilient town.

  • So its people, I`m supremely confident that Bostonians will pull together

  • to take care of each other and move forward as one proud city, and as they do,

  • the American people will be with them every single step of the way.

  • CARL AZUZ, CNN ANCHOR: City whose heart may be broken, but whose spirit is not.

  • We want to welcome you to the special edition of CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • Today`s entire show is about Monday`s terrorist attack in Boston.

  • The victims, the reactions, the investigation.

  • When we produced yesterday`s program, the bombings had just happened.

  • We didn`t have a lot of details.

  • We have more now, and that`s where we`ll start things off today.

  • The two bombs that went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon exploded 12 seconds apart.

  • Three people were killed, more than 170 others were wounded.

  • Early reports about other possible explosives turned out to be wrong.

  • One runner, Jennifer Tracy was in the marathon and recording on her phone when the first bomb went off.

  • AZUZ: That was the moment when the day changed.

  • John Berman fills in the time line leading up to the blast and immediately afterwards.

  • JOHN BERMAN, CNN CORRESPONDENT: A picture-perfect third Monday in April.

  • Patriot`s Day and the day of the 117th Boston Marathon.

  • At 9:32 A.M the elite women racers take off from Hopkinton on the 26.2 mile course on the way to Boston`s Back Bay.

  • Almost two and a half hours later, the first elite runners start crossing the finish line,

  • wave after wave of runners, thousands of them follow.

  • Then about 2:50 in the afternoon, it happens.

  • BERMAN: An explosion near the finish line.

  • 12 seconds later ...

  • BERMAN: ... another explosion. About a block up a crowded Boylston Street.

  • JEFF CURTIS, HELPED VICTIMS: They were banged up bad, severe lacerations, amputees, a lot of shrapnel.

  • You know, they were pretty big explosions.

  • They were banged, a lot of blood everywhere.

  • Emergency teams and law enforcement scramble.

  • OFFICER: Get all units in this city this scene now please.

  • OBAMA: This was a heinous and cowardly act,

  • and given what we now know about what took place, the FBI is investigating it as an act of terrorism.

  • Anytime bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror.

  • What we don`t yet know, however, is who carried out this attack or why.

  • Whether it was planned and executed by a terrorist organization,

  • foreign or domestic, or was it act of malevolent individual.

  • But we will find out.

  • We will find whoever harmed our citizens and we will bring them to justice.

  • The American people refused to be terrorized,

  • because what the world saw in the aftermath of the explosions were stories of heroism and kindness and generosity and love.

  • If you want to know who we are - and what America is, how we respond to evil, that`s it.

  • Selflessly, compassionately, unafraid.

  • AZUZ: President Obama met with some of his national security advisers yesterday.

  • That included the FBI director, the Attorney General and the Secretary of Homeland Security.

  • They were going over the latest details in the investigation in the attack.

  • As of Tuesday, authorities didn`t have any suspects,

  • and they haven`t determined any possible motives for the attack.

  • The investigation began immediately after the bombing, and the FBI has taken the lead.

  • RICK DESLAURIERS, FBI SPECIAL AGENT IN CHARGE: Our mission is clear:

  • to bring to justice those responsible for the marathon bombing.

  • The American public wants answers, the citizens of the city of Boston and the commonwealth of Massachusetts want and deserve answers.

  • This group of dedicated men and women standing before you today, pledged to do everything possible to get those answers.

  • AZUZ: Boston`s police commissioner described the site of Monday`s bombings as the most complex crime scene in the history of our department.

  • Part of the investigation is focused on what`s called the bomb`s signature.

  • The idea is that understanding the bombs can help lead authorities to possible suspects,

  • and even tiny pieces of debris can give clues.

  • Another way authorities are helping to find answers, is by going through pictures and video.

  • They`re getting a lot of footage from security cameras that were in the area,

  • but they are also asking anyone with images from any part of the marathon to share them with police.

  • JULIETTE KAYYEM, FORMER U.S. ASST. SECY. OF HOMELAND SECURITY: What the police are doing,

  • is that they`re starting to ask people at the airports to check their iPhones, which is just really smart.

  • People don`t know that they were witnesses, that they might actually have evidence in their phones or in their cameras,

  • and so there is no sort of the search amongst all the people that were there,

  • the tens of thousands of people to say, hey, did you see something?

  • AZUZ: Tom Foreman now has more on what exactly investigators are looking for.

  • TOM FOREMAN, CNN CORRESPONDENT: One of the mysteries of this attacks is that they happened so late in the sporting event,

  • more than 17500 runners had already completed the 26.2 miles, had passed the finish line and gone on their way.

  • Only about 6,000 remain.

  • The elite world class runners, who attract so many spectators, had long passed and left and that`s when these explosions happened.

  • So, what are police looking for?

  • They`re trying to find any way to see a connection between the people who were along this course before the explosions and the time they happened.

  • They are asking for video. They are asking for anything that people took in the way photographs along here, to see if there`s some connection.

  • Did they see some person how appears in the series of pictures or videos who seems to be connected to those explosive points.

  • If they can find that, that`s a lead, that`s something they can follow,

  • and then maybe then can solve some of the mysteries of these attacks.

  • AZUZ: When we put this show together, we had some limited information on the people who died in the Boston attack.

  • One of them was eight year old Martin Richard.

  • The boy was watching the marathon with his mother and sister, when the bombs went off.

  • The blast took Martin`s life, left his mother with the brain injury and his sister, who is six years old, lost a leg.

  • Yesterday, Martin`s father released a statement saying that his wife and daughter were recovering.

  • And also said, "We thank our family and friends, those we know and those we have never met, for their thoughts and prayers.

  • I ask that you continue to pray for my family as we remember Martin."

  • Flowers were left at the Richard`s home after the bombing, and someone wrote the word, "peace" at the end of their driveway.

  • Another victim was Krystle Campbell.

  • And the place she worked for put this note up in its Facebook page yesterday.

  • "She was an incredible woman, always full of energy an hard at work,

  • but never too tired to share her love and a smile with everyone.

  • She was an inspiration to all of us."

  • The reaction to Monday`s attack in Boston came in from across the country and around the world.

  • Global leaders spoke out against the violence and offered their thoughts and prayers to the victims and the people of Boston.

  • President Obama ordered the flag of the White House lowered to half-staff to honor those victims,

  • the flag at the U.S. Capitol building was at half- staff, too.

  • Security at those Washington buildings was increased after Monday`s attacks.

  • Other cities added additional security.

  • New York, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles.

  • And in London, which is set to hold its own marathon in just a few days,

  • organizers said that race will start with 30 seconds of silence to pay tribute to the attack in Boston.

  • Moments of silence were held around the U.S. as well, the U.S. House of Representatives paused on Monday after news of the attack.

  • In New York yesterday, the New York Stock Exchange, normally a scene of noise and energy, held the moment of silence,

  • and in Atlanta, there was a silent mile.

  • Runners paying tribute to the people killed and injured in Boston by running a full mile in silence Tuesday morning.

  • A lot of people turned to social media in the aftermath of Monday`s attacks.

  • They were sharing their support, some were looking for comfort.

  • That included some Boston athletes.

  • Danny Amendola, a wide receiver with the New England Patriots tweeted that he would donate $100 for every pass he catches this season to a Boston Marathon Relief Fund.

  • $200 for any dropped passes.

  • And Boston Red Sox player Shane Victorino tweeted that Boston is a tough, resilient town and will prevail over this saddening tragedy.

  • One quote started circulating around from children`s TV star Mr. Rogers.

  • He said "When I was a boy, and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, `Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping."

  • To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother`s words, and I`m always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers, so many caring people in this world."

  • If you are on Facebook, you`re welcome to share your thoughts and talk about what happened in Boston on our Facebook page.

  • It`s Facebook.com/cnnstudentnews.

  • And, of course, all of our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this tragedy and the people of Boston.

  • For CNN STUDENT NEWS, I`m Carl Azuz.

  • END

BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: Boston is a tough and resilient town.
