Boston Marathon - Vigil

BOSTON (AP) — Hundreds of people have attended a candlelight vigil in Boston for victims of Monday's marathon bombings.

A minister told hundreds of mourners that God wasn't in the evil that was committed, but was among the emergency responders who heroically tended to scores of wounded runners and bystanders.

Three people were killed and more than 170 people were injured in the bombings near the end of the race on Monday.

Participants in the vigil sang "Amazing Grace" and prayed that God would embrace the eight-year-old boy who was killed.

The minister said the candles they held symbolized the light of God shining amid the darkness of Monday's attack.
