Barefoot and wearing a black veil, the man dropped a large backpack shortly before being apprehended by police. The area is on high alert as commemorations for the victims of last year's bombing are underway Tuesday.

The area around the Boston Marathon finish line has been evacuated as cops investigate two suspicious backpacks left along Boylston Street.

Ceremonies throughout the day commemorated the victims on the one year anniversary of the bombing at the site that killed three and injured more than 260 people.

Around 7 p.m., a barefoot man wearing a black veil and yelling “Boston Strong!” as he ran left one of the backpacks at the finish line near Boylston and Dartmouth, WBZ-TV reported.

Tweets re: 2 suspicious backpacks left nr Marathon finish line: “Our @NECN video shows a man being taken in custody at finish line wearing all black, black paint on face, and no shoes. @NECN”... “My colleague, .@AtwaterWCVB, reports the fire depart. has detained the suspect seen dropping 2 backpacks @ the Boston Public Library.” (Julie Loncich) Also via Ch 4 website: “WBZ-TV photographers on scene say they saw a person with the backpack screaming “Boston Strong” before police cleared everyone from the area.Witnesses say the person was barefoot, wearing a long black veil and was acting strange. It is unclear whether or not the person was taken into custody.”

Bos Herald: The area near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street has been cordoned off as police respond to suspicious bags left at the scene....Sadly, the alert hit around the same time as the Norden brothers, J.P. and Paul, were completing their team’s Hopkinton-to-Boston relay to raise funds for prosthetics. Both brothers lost a leg in last year’s attacks at the finish line. Now the double-decker bus they rode in is parked near the area.

William Randolph Hearst ... Believed by many to have initiated the Spanish--American War of 1898 to encourage sales of his newspaper, also ... where the term "yellow journalism" got its start. Preceding was gleamed.
