US President Barack Obama will attend a religious service Thursday in Boston dedicated to three people killed and more than 170 injured in the attacks on the city's marathon.

"On Thursday morning, the President will travel to Boston to speak at an interfaith service dedicated to those who were gravely wounded or killed in Monday's bombing near the finish line of the Boston Marathon," a White House statement said.
