Boston - Boston police said on Monday that there was a third "incident" in the city, after two explosions rocked the Boston Marathon.

At a news conference, police Commissioner Ed Davis said that there was a another incident at the John F Kennedy library in the city.

Police were trying to establish if the incidents were connected.

Davis cautioned Bostonians to remain indoors, and not gather in large groups as it is an "ongoing event".

He said all all parcels and bags dropped by people during the chaos at the marathon blasts were being treated as suspicious.

Meanwhile, US President Barack Obama called Boston Mayor Tom Menino and Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick to offer US assistance in responding to the explosions that rocked the end of the Boston Marathon.
