There are three dead and at least 130 injured following the explosion of two bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, authorities say.

The two bombs went off simultaneously at around 2:50 PM. A senior U.S. intelligence official reports having found two other bombs in the same vicinity and says they are being dismantled.

The police have no suspects in custody and have no insight as to any possible motives or who may have orchestrated the attack.

The city has shut off the cell phones towers in the area in the event that a cell phone triggers another explosive. The Federal Aviation Administration has also prohibited flights over the area.

The White House is officially treating this attack as an act of terrorism. President Obama promised in his official statement that the perpetrators will "feel the full weight of justice."

"On this day, there are no Democrats or Republicans, only Americans," President Obama said in his statement, echoing his somber words following the Sandy Hook shooting. "Make no mistake:
We will get to the bottom of this and we will find out who did this," he vowed.

Over 26,000 runners and 500,000 spectators attended Monday's Boston Marathon, held every Patriots' Day in commemoration of the start of the American Revolutionary War at Lexington and Concord in 1775. It is one of Boston's largest annual events.

At around the time of the two explosions, a fire erupted a few miles away from the finish line at the John F. Kennedy Library. The fire may have been caused by some kind of incendiary device, but the police commissioner reports that the fire didn't appear to be related to the bombings.

The White House and President Obama say "the government will increase security around the United States as necessary."
