NEW YORK, N.Y. - Runners in the New York City Marathon who make it to the finish line will celebrate amid tighter security than ever.
Mindful of the Boston Marathon bombing in April, police plan to post extra officers at the finish in Central Park on Sunday. Other officers will keep watch by foot, by helicopter and by boat along the marathon route.
More than 45,000 runners are expected, many of them from overseas.
Three people were killed and more than 260 injured in the pair of explosions near the Boston Marathon finish line. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 20, faces 30 federal charges, including using a weapon of mass destruction. His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, died in a gunbattle with police days later.
