Investigations underway Tuesday for who and why bombs were planted at the Boston Marathon, according to multiple news sources.

Two bombs exploded in a crowd of spectators at the Boston Marathon Monday, according to the Boston Globe. The Boston Globe reported that over 176 people were injured and three people had died Monday night. Boston Globe reported that one of the victims killed was an 8-year-old boy.

President Obama said in a briefing "any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians it is an act of terrorism," BBC News reported. The BBC News also reported that it is unknown whether this was an act of an individual or an organization. BBC News reported that President Obama said "...we will find whoever harmed our citizens ad we will bring them to justice."

The Boston Globe reported that the shrapnel used in the bombs were prepared. The Boston Globe also reported that two bombs were hidden inside "two black bags."

The BBC News reported that the authorities are asking for citizens to bring forward any footage or photographs that might be able to give clues into who established these bombs.
