US President Barack Obama on Tuesday branded the Boston bombings a "cowardly" act of terror, but said it was still unclear if a foreign or domestic group or individual was behind the attacks.

"This was a heinous and cowardly act," Obama said at the White House. "Any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an an act of terror."
