China Mourns Third Boston Victim

Mourning is spreading across China as the third victim of Monday’s attacks in Boston was reported to be Lu Lingzi, a Chinese graduate student who was studying finance at Boston University and went to watch a friend run the Boston Marathon. Her university and the Chinese consulate in New York have not identified her at her family’s request, but a classmate, a university official, and a state-run Chinese newspaper released her name, sparking thousands of messages on Chinese websites and tens of thousands of replies to her account on Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter.
