Convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev broke his silence Wednesday and apologized to the victims and the survivors of the deadly 2013 attack.
“I am sorry for the lives that I’ve taken, for the suffering that I’ve caused you, and the damage that I’ve done,” he said Wednesday during his sentencing hearing.
The remarks are Tsarnaev’s first in public since the attack that killed three people and left 264 others wounded. He was found guilty of the bombing on April 8; the jury gave him the death penalty May 15.
“I pray to Allah to bestow his mercy on you,” Tsarnaev said prior to Judge George O’Toole imposing the death sentence. “I pray for your relief, for your healing, for your well-being, for your health.”
He added: “I ask Allah for mercy for me and for my brother,” Tamerlan.
Tsarnaev also thanked his attorneys and those who testified on his behalf, but added: “I am guilty of [the bombings], along with my brother, if there is any lingering doubt.”
