BOSTON - Journalists at The Boston Globe are honoring the victims of last year's marathon bombings after being awarded a Pulitzer Prize for the paper's coverage of the attack.

Monday's announcement came as the city prepares for Tuesday's anniversary of the bombing.

Globe Editor Brian McGrory asked the staff to observe a moment of "quiet reflection and remembrance" for those affected by the bombing.

The Pulitzer committee says the Globe won in the breaking news category for its "exhaustive and empathetic coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings and the ensuing manhunt that enveloped the city, using photography and a range of digital tools to capture the full impact of the tragedy."

Three people were killed and more than 260 wounded in the attack, transforming a typically celebratory event into a scene of horror and heroics.
