In Boston Marathon bombings, Justice Department gives $8.3M to victims, witnesses and responders

WASHINGTON — The Justice Department’s Office for Victims of Crime is providing $8.3 million to assist victims, witnesses and first responders in the Boston Marathon bombings, funds that will help address physical and emotional injuries suffered by an estimated 1,000 people.

Attorney General Eric Holder said those affected include people in the vicinity of the April 15 bombings at the Boston Marathon’s finish line, as well as residents of the neighborhood where a gunfight between the suspects and police took place four days later. The grant money will go to organizations providing direct support to the victims.

Two pressure cooker bombs were detonated near the race’s finish line, killing three spectators and injuring more than 260 people.
