President Obama will travel to Boston on Thursday to pay tribute to the families and victims impacted by the bombings in the New England city, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick said during a news conference Tuesday.
Obama has publicly addressed the incident three times since the explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday.
“On Thursday morning, the president will travel to Boston to speak at an interfaith service dedicated to those who were gravely wounded or killed in Monday’s bombing near the finish line of the Boston Marathon,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said in a statement.
Obama is hoping authorities will have more leads on the incident by the time he lands in Boston. So far, both the FBI and the White House have shown little progress in identifying a suspect.
