LONDON (AP) - The London Marathon will go ahead on Sunday despite security fears in the wake of the bomb blasts in the Boston race that killed at least three runners and injured many more.
British Sports Minister Hugh Robertson told the BBC on Tuesday "the best way for us to react is to push ahead with the marathon, to send a very clear message that we won't be cowered by this sort of behavior."
Nick Bitel, chief executive of the London Marathon, added that organizers are reviewing security around the race through the heart of Britain's capital but "we will not be cancelling."
An estimated 500,000 spectators are expected to line the streets to watch the London Marathon, which involves about 37,500 runners.
