WASHINGTON (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden will attend a memorial service next week in Boston marking the anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Biden and his wife, Jill, plan to attend the Tuesday ceremony. The vice president’s office says they’ll pay tribute to victims of the bombing, as well as the survivors and first responders.

April 15 marks the one-year mark since two bombs exploded near the finish line of the marathon, killing three and wounding hundreds. The explosions plunged Boston and its suburbs into a week of chaos amid a manhunt for two brothers accused of planning the attack.
