Sri Lanka President Mahinda Rajapaksa in a message to US President condemned the Boston bomb attack while conveying condolences over loss of lives.

An explosion at the finish line of the Boston Marathon Monday killed three people and injured more than 140.

Two bombs exploded about 10 seconds and 100 yards apart at about 2:50 p.m. Monday in Boston’s Copley Square, near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Three people were killed, including an 8-year-old boy, and more than 140 were injured. The explosions occurred four hours into the race and two hours after the winners had crossed the finish line, but thousands of runners were still on the course.
