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?
Feel for all them people in Boston…. Where is Boston in england or america?

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.
Just heard the news. So terribly sad. thoughts with everyone in Boston .x
