Hartford (AP) — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is asking Connecticut residents to observe a moment of silence Monday afternoon in recognition of the victims of last week's bombing at the Boston Marathon.

Malloy says he directed state agencies to join Massachusetts in the moment of silence at 2:50 p.m., the time the explosions ripped through the crowds near the finish line last Monday.

Three people were killed and more than 180 others were wounded in the twin bombings.

The governor and Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman plan to observe the moment of silence at Minuteman Park in front of the State Armory in Hartford.
