Boston Bombing Anniversary

Biden To Attend Boston Marathon Bombing Memorial

Vice President Joe Biden and wife, Jill, will travel to Boston next week to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Three people were killed and more than 260 wounded when two bombs exploded near the marathon’s finish line on April 15, 2013.

President Barack Obama attended a memorial service in Boston three days after the attack that led to a city-wide manhunt for brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Biden also traveled to Massachusetts to attended a memorial service for slain MIT police officer Sean Collier, who authorities say was killed by the bombing suspects.

The Vice President’s office has not yet released the exact details of the trip.
