AP PHOTOS: AP revisits Boston bombing sites


Life has resumed on the streets of Boston.

A year after three people were killed and more than 260 injured when two bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, the city’s landscape bears few reminders of the explosions, or the ensuing manhunt for suspects that ended with the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in Watertown.

On Boylston Street, the chaos and pain of that day have been replaced by the regular routines of pedestrians and drivers. Businesses are open, including the Forum restaurant, badly damaged when one bomb exploded directly outside.

This week, barricades and a viewing stand are set up near the finish line for this year’s marathon, set for Monday.

Just down the street, Copley Square became home to a spontaneous memorial. The items, including running shoes and messages, were removed in June. Some are now on view in an exhibit across the street at the Boston Public Library.

A few days after the bombing, Tsarnaev eluded capture after a gunbattle with police. Residents of Boston and surrounding communities were told to stay indoors while police went house to house searching for him. His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, died following the shootout with police.

Today, those neighborhoods are quiet again. (AP)

Ford Mustang turns 50

The car’s styling captured the exuberant youth culture of America in the early 1960s — and its $2,368 price tag made it affordable to the horde of baby boomers just reaching driving age or heading off to college. That price was for the basic six-cylinder engine, but buyers could add extra-cost (and handsomely profitable) options, including an automatic transmission, air conditioning, convertible top and a 289-cubic-inch V8 engine.American popular culture was gaining global reach in the early 1960s, and the Mustang went along for the ride. Over the years, Mustang clubs were established in more than 150 nations, many of which opposed America’s policies but admired its lifestyle. (Reuters)
