Security ramped up for Boston Marathon

0

BOSTON: A “no-bags” policy is among tightened security measures being introduced for this year’s Boston Marathon, organizers said on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) , as the emotional first race since last year’s bombings looms in April. Two bombs hidden inside backpacks exploded near the finish line of last year’s marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 250 others. Security was tightened at major marathons worldwide as a result. This year, not even runners will be allowed to bring bags to keep personal items, the Boston Athletic Association (BAA) said.
