Gov. Bobby Jindal Orders Louisiana State Flags at Half-Staff to Remember Boston Marathon Bombing Victims
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Gov. Bobby Jindal has ordered that state flags at government buildings in Louisiana be flown at half-staff until sunset Saturday.
Similar gestures are being made by local governments. A news release from Bossier City, for example, said flags at municipal buildings there would be lowered for the same period.
The gestures coincide with President Barack Obama's order that flags at the White House and all government buildings be flown at half-staff in honor of the explosion victims.
