Dzhokhar Tsarnaev apologized on Wednesday in federal court to the victims and families of the April 2013 Boston marathon bombing, in which he killed three people and injured more than 200 others. “I would like to apologize to the victims and survivors. I did do it. I am sorry for the lives I have taken, for the suffering I have caused, and for the terrible damage I have done,” read Tsarnaev from what appeared to be a written statement. “I am Muslim. My religion is Islam. I pray to Allah to bestow his mercy on those affected in the bombing and their families. I pray for your healing.”

Tsarnaev further addressed the silent Boston courtroom, saying, “I ask Allah to have mercy on me, my brother and my family.” Tsarnaev’s apology was the first time he had spoken out in federal court. A few hours before Tsarnaev addressed the courtroom, the families of the survivors and victims were allowed to give their testimonies. The convicted bomber, who was condemned by a jury in May, received a death sentenced.

As Gossip Cop reported, Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, placed two bombs near the finish line of the race. Both bombs exploded simultaneously, killing three people, and wounding 260 others. Tsarnaev was captured during an intense manhunt, which resulted in a MIT police officer also being killed. Tamerlan was killed during a shootout with police. What do you think about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev apologizing to the victims and survivors of the Boston marathon bombing?
