LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - More than three-dozen Arkansans were registered to run in the Boston Marathon, where two explosions were set off near the finish line following the race.

According to the race's website, 37 runners in Monday's race had listed Arkansas as their home state. Their ages were listed between 21 and 71 years of age.

It wasn't known whether any Arkansans were injured.

About three hours after the winners crossed the finish line, there was a loud explosion near a photo bridge that marks the finish line. Another blast could be heard a few seconds later.
