We all have plenty of questions in the wake of yesterday’s horrific terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon, but there’s one question we certainly weren’t prepared to hear: where is Boston? Is it in New York or England?

To be fair, the bombing has made news internationally, although evidence suggests quite a few learned of the explosions not from the BBC but rather 1D. One Direction’s Harry Styles tweeted his thoughts on the tragedy, but he wasn’t very specific about the details.
