BOSTON - Bells rang out across Boston today to honor the victims of the Marathon bombing.

Churches across the city sounded the bells following a minute of silence at 2:50 p.m., exactly one week since the bomb blasts killed three and wounded more than 180.

Officials say 50 of those victims are still in the hospital today, a reminder that the city is still mourning and in shock.

Two bombs exploded at 2:50 p.m. a week ago Monday as runners were crossing the finish line about four hours into the Boston Marathon.

At the statehouse in Boston, lawmakers took a break to gather outside and remember.

One of the suspected bombers died after a shootout with police and the other has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction to kill.
