Obama to attend Boston Marathon interfaith service

Wednesday, 17 April 2013 - 9:07


US President Barack Obama will travel to Boston tomorrow, for a religious service dedicated to the victims of the bomb attack on the city's marathon.


The White House said Obama has cancelled a planned trip to Kansas to speak at the interfaith service.


Three people died, including an eight-year-old boy, and more than 170 were injured when two bombs exploded near the finish line of Tuesday's race.


Meanwhile, the FBI says the bombs may have been hidden in black backpacks.
