Amid the ongoing investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings yesterday, President Obama identified the tragedy as "an act of terrorism" in his press conference this morning, following comments made by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel having identified the bombings as "a cruel act of terror."

The bombings were a "heinous cowardly act," President Obama said this morning, "and given what we now know about what took place, the FBI is investigating it as an act of terrorism." The President also encouraged strength and vigilance: "The American people refuse to be terrorized."
