BOSTON (AP) - Boston University says a graduate student at the school was one of the three people killed in the bombings at the Boston Marathon. The female student was a female national.
The Chinese Consulate in New York confirmed that a Chinese national was among those killed in the marathon bombings in Boston, but did not identify her. Boston University confirmed the victim was one of its graduate students.
The Consulate also said in a statement Tuesday that another Chinese citizen was wounded and was in stable condition following surgery.
Phoenix Satellite Television Holdings, a Hong Kong-based broadcaster with ties to the Chinese government, said the deceased was a woman from the northeastern Chinese city of Shenyang who was a graduate student in statistics at Boston University.
A team led by Deputy Consul General Ruiming Zhong was in Boston to investigate the situation and assist relatives of the victims, the consulate's statement said.
The official Chinese news agency Xinhua reported that relatives have requested that the deceased not be identified.
The statement says the student was with two friends who were watching the race at the finish line, not far from the university's campus. One of the friends, also a grad student at the university, was injured and is at Boston Medical Center in stable condition.
The two other victims who died have been identified as 8-year-old Martin Richard, of Boston, and 29-year-old Krystle Campbell, of Medford.
More than 170 people were injured.
