Accused Boston bomber’s attorneys to seek records on family

BOSTON (Reuters) – Lawyers for the accused Boston Marathon bomber are due in court on Wednesday to ask a judge to order prosecutors to hand over more information on the defendant’s family as they seek to build a case that could limit his blame for the attack.

Defense attorneys have called on federal prosecutors to hand over any records they have on suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s older brother, Tamerlan, who authorities contend also played a role in the attacks but died a few days later in a gun battle with police.

Voices of gratitude, defiance at Boston bombing memorial

BOSTON (Reuters) – Vice President Joe Biden, other leaders and survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing shared messages of thanks and defiance on Tuesday at a tribute to the three people killed and 264 wounded in the attack exactly one year ago.

From Patrick Downes, who lost a leg when a pair of homemade bombs ripped through the crowd at the race’s finish line, to Biden, speakers recalled how police officers, spectators and others on the scene reacted immediately to help the wounded amid the chaos on April 15, 2013.
