Boston marks week from Marathon bombs with silence


Boston plans to mark the traumatic week of the Boston Marathon bombings with mournful silence as the city returns to its bustling commute.

Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has asked residents to observe a moment of silence at 2:50 p.m. Monday, the time the first of two bombs exploded near the finish line.

Bells will ring across the city and state afterward.

Authorities on Friday made the unprecedented request that residents stay at home during the manhunt for 19-year-old suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

He was later discovered hiding in a boat covered by a tarp in suburban Watertown.

His 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed during a getaway attempt.

The motive of the two ethnic Chechen brothers from southern Russia remains unclear.

The bombings killed 3 people and injured more than 180.
