Security Plans For Boston Marathon To Be Detailed
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — Officials today will be outlining their plan for upgraded security at this year’s Boston Marathon.
Local, state and federal agencies, the Boston Athletic Association and leaders from the eight communities that make up the marathon route started working on a plan following last year’s bombing attack that killed three people and wounded more than 260.
This year, police are expecting about 36,000 runners and up to a million spectators.
