Boston marks week from Marathon bombs with silence
BOSTON (AP) — Seven days after the Boston Marathon bombings, the city was bustling Monday, with runners hitting the pavement, children walking to school and enough cars clogging the streets to make the morning commute feel almost back to normal in the hours before the traumatic week would be marked with mournful silence.
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has asked residents to observe a moment of silence at 2:50 p.m. Monday, the time the first of the two bombs exploded near the finish line. Bells will toll across the city and state after the minute-long tribute to the victims.
The surviving suspect, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, remained in serious condition in a hospital with a wound to his neck. His older brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan, was killed during a furious getaway attempt.
