Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has apologized for setting off bombs in the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon, killing 3 people and injuring 200 others … and he reportedly cried while doing so.
After listening to testimonies of the victims’ families, Tsarnaev said. ‘I would like to apologize to the victims and the 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.’
"Immediately after the bombing, of which I am guilty of, there is little doubt about that. I learned their faces, their names." He's crying.

‘I am Muslim. My religion is Islam. I pray to Allah to bestow his mercy on those affected in the bombing and their families,’ he continued. ‘I pray for your healing. I ask Allah to have mercy on me, my brother, and my family.’
This is the first time Tsarnaev has spoken in court ever since he was arrested in 2013 for the terrorist crime.
The sentencing hearing ended with him being sentenced – again – to ‘death by execution’ and life imprisonment on other charges.
