Boston Remembers Victims as Terrorists Kidnap Nigerian Schoolgirls
Bostonians gathered to pay tribute to the marathon bombing victims in a ceremony that marked the anniversary of the blasts. Things took a disturbing turn when police were called to investigate — and later detonated — two unattended bags near the site of the marathon’s finish line. In Nigeria, meanwhile, more than 100 schoolgirls were kidnapped a day after dozens of people were killed in a bus station bombing in the capital, Abuja. The militant group Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for the bombing but made no comment on the abduction, for which it is also believed to be responsible. 84 girls are still missing.
