      U.S. to Seek Death Penalty for Boston Bomber


      The United States is to seek the death penalty for accused Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev if he is convicted of involvement in the deadly attack, Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday, according to AFP.

      "The nature of the conduct at issue and the resultant harm compel this decision," Holder said in a statement on the prosecution of the 20-year-old, a U.S. citizen from a Chechen Muslim family.
