Time's Heartbreaking Boston Bombing Cover (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Time published a devastating preview on Tuesday of its special edition about the Boston bombings.

The issue is a tablet-only one. It will be released in full on Thursday. But the cover is horrific enough. It shows a policeman carrying a crying, bloodied and wounded boy away from the scene of the attack.

Time's choice of photo seems likely to provoke controversy; people recoil at the sight of children in peril, and some will inevitably wonder why the magazine chose the picture it did.
