Two pressure-cooker bombs that tore through the crowd at the 2013 Boston Marathon forever linked that storied race with the carnage that followed. Three people were killed and 264 more were wounded as runners streamed towards the finish line.

For five days in April 2013 — from the initial attack to the ensuing manhunt, deadly shootouts and eventual arrest of the surviving suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev — Boston was a focus of world attention. For a look back at the events of last year, watch the video in the embedded player.
