Putin Offers Help With Boston Bombings Investigation

Two powerful explosions ripped through a crowd near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing 3 and injuring 144 – 17 of them critically.  On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a telegram to his US counterpart Barack Obama expressing his condolences, and said “Russia is ready to help the US authorities with their investigation if necessary,” the Kremlin said on Tuesday in a statement on its website. “Putin strongly condemned this barbarous crime and expressed his conviction that the fight against terrorism requires the active coordination of efforts by the global community,” the statement said.  It is not yet clear who was responsible for the bomb attacks or the motive.
