One person is dead and hundreds are injured following a massive explosion that rocked the Olympic Games early this morning.
It happened around 1:25.
Flying nails and screws filled the air minutes after a caller warned Atlanta police of the bombing.
F-B-I officials told reporters they believe the caller was a white male, and an American.
But outside on the streets the mood is more somber.
There are still people on the streets of downtown Atlanta, but as many as before.
