BEIJING- One of the last things the Chinese graduate student did before she was killed in the attack on the Boston Marathon was to upload a photo that reflected the simple pleasures of her life.
The picture, of a bread and fruit salad, bore the title "My wonderful breakfast" and was posted on her micro-blog just hours before she was killed by the explosions near the finish line of the race.
The victim, a graduate student from China at Boston University, has not been identified by Chinese or US authorities at the request of the family.
However, a statement from the US Embassy confirmed media reports that she was from Shenyang city in northeast China. A graduate student from the western Chinese city of Chengdu was gravely injured, the embassy said.
