NEW YORK, May 15. /TASS/. A jury court in the U.S. has issued a death sentence to Djokhar Tsarnayev, a man behind organizing explosions during the Boston Marathon in 2013 which killed three people and left hundreds of others injured.
On April 8, Tsarnayev, 21, was found guilty of all the 30 charges against him.
Boston Marathon bombings carried out by brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev represent a political crime, US Attorney Carmen Ortiz said on Friday.
The bombing was not a religious crime, Ortiz said, adding that "it was a political crime designed to intimidate and coerce the United States."
Tsarnaev "came to believe in an ideology of hate" and "will pay with his life for his crimes," the attorney added.
Boston Marathon bombing survivors said the death sentence for Tsarnaev is fair. "My mother and I think that now he will go away and we will be able to move on. Justice. In his own words, ‘an eye for an eye’," Sydney Corcoran, who along with her mother suffered a severe leg injury, wrote on her Twitter microblog page.
Another survivor, Adrianne Davis, who lost her left leg below the knee wrote: "My heart is with our entire survivor community. I am thrilled with the verdict!"
"Completely numb… and waiting anxiously for the day this is really over," Rebekah DiMartino, who underwent 17 operation before having her leg amputated, wrote on her Twitter page.
Earlier today, a jury in Boston sentenced Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death after finding him guilty of six counts out of 17 that carry capital punishment.
On April 15, 2013, two explosions hit Boston marathon. Three people died in the blasts while 260 others were injured. The terrorist attack was organized by Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Tamerlan was killed in a shootout with police while Dzhokhar was arrested.
