Boston Marathon survivor calls for death penalty

A Boston Marathon bombings survivor has told ITV News those responsible for the attacks should be handed the death penalty.

Marc Fucarile, who lost his right leg above the knee and broke his spine, Washington Correspondent Robert Moore: "You know they're sick, sick people. They killed people that didn't do anything to them and I think they should pay the ultimate sacrifice.

"I think that anyone that thinks in that direction should also pay the sacrifice".

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who died in a shoot-out with police four days after the attacks, and his brother Dzhokhar have been accused of carrying out the Boston Marathon bombings.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty to 30 charges.

Boston bombing report cites information lapses

Information that may have raised US scrutiny of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev fell through the cracks in communications among US intelligence agencies and between the United States and Russia, an inspectors general report released today showed.

US intelligence was alerted by Russian intelligence in 2011 that Tsarnaev might pose a threat, but lack of further information led to less heightened awareness of the danger he posed, said the report by inspectors general for the US intelligence community.

Two Chechen brothers, Tamerlan and his younger brother Dzhokhar, are suspected of planting pressure-cooker bombs near the race's finish line last April 15 in an attack that killed three people and wounded more than 260.

Tamerlan died after a gunfight with police while the younger brother is awaiting trial on charges that could lead to the death penalty if he is convicted.

The defence team is seeking a host of records from prosecutors, including any evidence to support its claim the FBI had asked Tamerlan Tsarnaev to be an informant.

Twin explosions at the April 15 marathon killed three people and injured more than 260 others. Tamerlan, 26, died in a shoot-out with police four days after the attack. Dzhokhar, who was 19 at the time of the bombings, was captured soon after his brother's death and pleaded not guilty to 30 charges.

Dzhokhar's lawyers wrote: "Any surveillance, evidence, or interviews showing that Tamerlan's pursuit of jihad pre-dated Dzhokhar's would tend to support the theory that Tamerlan was the main instigator of the tragic events that followed."

US prosecutors will seek the death penalty for Boston Marathan bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement today.

"The nature of the conduct at issue and the resultant harm compel this decision," Holder said.

Prosecutors say that Tsarnaev, 20, and his brother Tamerlan, 26, planted a pair of homemade pressure-cooker bombs at the race's crowded finish line on 15th April 2013, killing three people and wounding 264.

Three nights later, the pair killed a university police officer and later engaged in a shootout with police that left Tamerlan dead, it is alleged.

Police photographer releases Tsarnaev capture stills

A police photographer who documented the unfolding drama of the hunt and capture of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has released a full set of images to Boston Magazine.

Sergeant Sean Murphy released a small number of the photographs to the magazine in July because he was "furious" with the way Tsarnaev had been portrayed on the cover of Rolling Stone.

Boston Magazine has now published around 50 of the striking photographs taken by Sergeant Murphy, who was suspended and then moved to nightshifts as an apparent punishment.

In a statement to the magazine, Sgt Murphy said Tsarnaev was evil and his photos showed the "real Boston bomber, not someone fluffed and buffed for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine".

He said the Rolling Stone cover insulted officers killed in the line of duty, their colleagues and their families by glamorising the "face of terror".
