Boston Marathon Suspect: My Brother Became a Martyr

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who is being held on suspicion of last month's bombing and shooting attacks in the Boston area, wrote on the wall of the boat where he hid from police that the bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon was revenge for the killing of Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to sources cited Thursday evening by the Columbia Broadcasting System. He wrote, "When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims," and referred to the Boston victims as "collateral damage".

Tsarnaev wrote that he did not mourn his brother Tamerlan, who was killed in a shootout with police, calling him a martyr.
