Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Bomber, on Wednesday apologised to his victims in court during his death sentence hearing, reports Britain’s Sky news.
“I am sorry for the lives that I have taken, for the suffering that I have caused you, for the damage, the irreparable damage,” the 21-year-old was reported as saying.
Tsarnaev sais that he was a Muslim and hoped ‘Allah would have mercy on his victims and himself and his brother.’
According to reports, Tsarnaev struggled to keep composure during the hearing.
A jury last month had given him death sentence for the April 2013 bombing, which had killed three people while injuring 264 people.
Tsarnaev’s lawyers are expected to file an appeal, and the legal process may take many years.
