Fate of Boston bomber entrusted to US jury

0

BOSTON: The fate of Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will be entrusted to jurors Tuesday when they start deliberating the guilt of the 21-year-old American accused of carrying out the deadly 2013 attacks. Three people were killed and 264 others wounded in the twin blasts at the city’s marathon, the worst attack in the United States since the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. Government prosecutors portrayed the Muslim immigrant, who became a US citizen in 2012, as a callous terrorist who carried out the bombings to bring holy war to the northeastern US city and punish the United States.
