"It is disheartening to learn that explosive devices were placed to intentionally harm innocent bystanders, but I want to encourage everyone to cooperate with law enforcement authorities as they work to identify whomever is responsible for these senseless attacks and increase public safety. I want to applaud our first responders for their heroism.
