US President Barack Obama gave a late night television address in which he offered sympathy for the victims of the explosions and pledged support to the authorities in Massachusetts.
Officials say the bombs used in the Boston Marathon attack were put inside pressure cookers, designed to amplify the force of the blasts.
This image from a Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Homeland Security joint bulletin shows the remains of a pressure-cooker bomb that exploded during the Boston Marathon, the FBI says.
The FBI asks anyone with any information to call 1-800-225-5324, prompt #3.
