Boston bombing suspect Dzhohkar Tsarnaev may have revealed more about what motivated him and his brother, Tamerlan in the Boston Marathon bombing last month, in the form of a note.
After a day-long manhunt on April 19, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was discovered hiding in a boat in a backyard in Watertown, Massachussets, and apprehended by the police. Before he was arrested, according to new reports from CBS, he may have scrawled a note explaining why he and his brother carried out the attacks.
The note reportedly calls the bombing retaliation against the US's continued wars and presence in Iraq and Afghanistan, adding, "When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims," though that has not been confirmed.
