Boston marks anniversary of bombing with somber ceremonies

BOSTON (Reuters) – Boston began its memorials of last year’s marathon bombing attack, which killed three people and injured 264, on a quiet note Tuesday, with Mayor Martin Walsh and Cardinal Sean O’Malley visiting wreaths left at the spots where the two bombs went off.

Accompanied by an honor guard of local police, a group of dignitaries that also included Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and the family of the youngest victim, eight-year-old Martin Richard, stopped twice along Boylston Street near the race’s finish line.

Friend of accused Boston bomber asks judge to dismiss cover-up charges

BOSTON (Reuters) – Attorneys for one of the friends of the accused Boston Marathon bomber charged with helping to cover his tracks asked a judge on Friday to dismiss the criminal charges against their client, calling them unconstitutionally vague.

Kazakh exchange student Dias Kadyrbayev also asked U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock through attorneys to strike references to “terrorism” and any “inflammatory” description of the damage caused by the bombing attack. In court papers, attorneys note that Kadyrbayev was not involved in the attack itself but simply charged with removing items from the accused bomber’s dormitory room three days later.
