B’nai B’rith has issued the following statement:
We are shocked and deeply saddened by the terror attack that occurred at the Boston Marathon on April 15.
At this time, officials say three people were killed and more than 100 injured by the two blasts that rocked the finish-line area of the iconic Boston Marathon.
Though there is no claim of responsibility, the perpetrator or perpetrators clearly aimed to strike large numbers of people.
Our thoughts and prayers go to the victims and their families.
