Two South African athletes were injured in the Boston marathon bomb blast, it was reported on Tuesday.
“So far, we’ve been alerted to two South Africans that have been injured. Our information is that they are being treated and we are offering consular service to them,” international relations and co-operation department spokesman Clayson Monyela told SABC radio news.
Twenty-eight South Africans registered for the race.
At least three people were killed and more than 100 were injured in twin explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, while the race was in progress.
