A jury has sentenced Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to thedeath penalty.
After 14 hours of deliberation, the jury of five men and seven women came to its decision.
Three people were killed and 260 were injured when Tsarnaev, now 21, and his brother placed bombs at the finishing line of the Boston Marathon in 2013.
Jurors made findings on 12 factors that would support the death penalty and 21 mitigating factors his defence said supported a life in prison verdict.
Seven of 30 charges Tsarnaev was convicted of allow the possibility of the death penalty.
Victims and their family members sobbed as the sentence was read. Tsarnaev bowed his head but otherwise did not show emotion in court.
