At least two explosions rocked the Boston Marathon this afternoon.

Multiple reports indicated runners and spectators were bloodied and being carried from the course to race medical tents.

Boston police have stated two people have died and at least 22 were injured in the blasts.

The explosions took place about two hours after the winning runners crossed the finish line and around four hours after the race's start.

Multiple reports stated glass was shattered and might have injured a number of people.

Runners who had not finished the race were diverted to an emergency area.

Bomb squads and SWAT teams are currently on the scene searching for more explosive devices.
