Victims, media arrive at Boston bombing trial
BOSTON (AP) - Victims of the Boston Marathon bombing have arrived at court for opening statements in the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Two busloads of people hurt in the bombings arrived at the federal courthouse at 7:30 a.m. Monday. They entered through a side entrance, away from reporters and photographers gathered at the main entrance.
Marc Fucarile went in the front entrance but did not comment to reporters. He lost a leg in the attack.
Lawyers for Tsarnaev have made it clear they will try to show that he was influenced by his older brother, Tamerlan, who died following a shootout with police days after the bombings.
Prosecutors say Dzhokhar was an equal and willing participant in the plot that killed three and hurt more than 260.
