Report: Boston Bombing Suspect Says Motive Was "Retribution"

Posted: Updated:

The surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon attack indicated that the bombing was retribution for what he called U.S. attacks against Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq, a law enforcement official says.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev made remarks about the bombing in a makeshift message found in the boat where he was captured in the backyard of a Watertown, Massachusetts, home.

Tsarnaev scribbled that the Boston victims were collateral damage as Muslims have been during war, and that an attack against one Muslim is an attack against all of them.

The twin blasts at the Boston Marathon on April 15 killed three and wounded more than 260 others.
