This is Visual Journalism [11]

The Boston bombings is one of the topics covered by newspapers worldwide

April 18, 2013  |  CATEGORIES: Featured, News

What  was supposed to be ‘just’ another great sports event ended up in tragedy. An absurd, incomprehensible tragedy, that united the world in sympathy for the city of Boston. The two explosions near the finish line of 117th Boston Marathon, last week,  left three bodies and more than 170 people wounded, many with serious injuries.

According to CNN, the attack left Boston police with the most complex crime scene  in the history of the department, and as the investigation continues, newsrooms across the globe keep producing infographics and interactive visualizations about the situation. We’ve included some of those print infographics in today’s edition of  This is Visual Journalism, alongside other works published recently.
