U.S. President Barack Obama arrived in Boston Thursday for a service to remember the three spectators killed and scores wounded in a terrorist attack at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
Obama has been continually briefed on the investigation into the two bombs at Monday's race, the White House said.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack, and no suspects have been taken into custody although investigators have reportedly identified a suspect on surveillance video of the scene.
In remarks at an interfaith service at Boston's Cathedral of the Holy Cross, Obama is to praise the city's residents for their resilience, honour the emergency responders and mourn for the impacted families, the White House said.
The service is to begin at 11 a.m.
