Obama: Boston capture closes out a 'tough week'

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) -

President Barak Obama says victims of the Boston Marathon explosions still deserve to know the motives and the planning behind the deadly blasts. He acknowledges that the capture of a second suspect in Boston brought to a close a trying five days for his presidency and for the nation.

Obama says that despite a tough week, the nation's character showed through.

He says the capture Friday of one suspect and the death of another in the twin blasts at the Boston's venerable race Monday "closed an important chapter in this tragedy."

He also cites the devastating explosion at a fertilizer plant in Texas that has left at least 14 people dead.
