VIDEO: President Obama Statement On Boston Marathon Bombing

WASHINGTON (AP) — A White House official says the bomb attack at the Boston Marathon that killed at least three people and injured more than 140 is being treated as an act of terrorism. Two bombs went off Monday and officials say as many as two unexploded bombs were also found near the marathon course, but they were safely disarmed.

President Barack Obama, responding to the explosions at the Boston Marathon, says the United States does not know "who did this or why" but vowed that whoever is responsible "will feel the full weight of justice."

He said: "We will find out who did this and we will hold them accountable."

Obama made his remarks Monday evening from the White House about three hours after two explosions detonated near the marathon's finish line. At least two people were killed and 50 injured in the blasts.

Obama has been in touch with federal law enforcement and Massachusetts officials in the aftermath of the explosions.

The Secret Service reacted cautiously to the blasts, expanding the security perimeter around the White House.
