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.
