BOSTON (AP) - A tribute is underway in Boston for those killed and injured in the bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon a year ago.

Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Gov. Deval (deh-VAL') Patrick and former Mayor Tom Menino (meh-NEE'-noh) are among those speaking at the invitation-only event at the Hynes Convention Center. Several survivors are also sharing their thoughts.

There will be a march to the nearby finish line and a moment of silence at 2:49 p.m. to mark the moment the two bombs exploded.

In Washington, President Barack Obama planned to observe the anniversary with a private moment of silence at the White House.

Boston police Commissioner Williams Evans says the anniversary is an emotional day and brings back "some terrible memories."
