US: Outrage as Boston Bomber Appears on Magazine Cover

Readers of the U.S.-based magazine Rolling Stone expressed outrage on Wednesday upon discovering that the cover of this week’s edition of the popular magazine features a photograph of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who carried out the terror attack at the Boston Marathon along with his brother. The photo is accompanied by an investigative report into the life of Tsarnaev, including a revelation that he used to hide his being Muslim while studying in high school.

More than 9,000 comments expressing outrage were posted on the magazine’s Facebook page, while storeowners in the Boston area announced that they would refuse to sell the magazine in their stores.
