Los Angeles Times

A pipe bomb exploded in a Jersey Shore town Saturday shortly before thousands of runners were due to participate in a charity 5-kilometer race to benefit Marines and sailors, authorities said. No injuries were reported in the blast at Seaside Park around 9:30 a.m. Saturday, said Al Della Fave, spokesman for the Ocean County prosecutor's office. He also said no surrounding structures suffered any apparent damage. The third annual Semper Five run was canceled and the immediate area was put on lockdown.
