Today, the U.S. government accused Chechen Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, for the use of “weapons of mass destruction” against people in connection with the explosion of two bombs at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
General Attorney Eric Holder informed in Washington of the charges against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, including “the use of weapons of mass destruction against persons and property which resulted in the deaths of three people and injuring more than 200.”
Tsarnaev, if convicted, could be sentenced to death or life imprisonment, said Holder.
The prosecutors in this case are William Weinreb and Aloke Chakravarty of the Anti-Terrorist and National Security Unit of the Attorney’s Office in the District of Massachusetts, informed the Department of Justice.
ABC TV station reported this morning that Tsarnaev was awake and responded questions on writing, since he had suffered a wound in the throat and cannot talk.
