Accused Boston bomber's slain older brother to loom over trial

Courtroom sketch shows Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tsarnaev during the jury selection process in his trial at the federal courthouse in BostonBy Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - Lawyers for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect sparred with federal prosecutors on Monday over how early in the trial they may discuss his older brother's role in the attack, suggesting the defendant's life may well hang on that question. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 21, is charged with killing three people and injuring 264 in the April 15, 2013, attack as well as shooting dead a university police officer as he and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, prepared to flee the city three days later. Tamerlan died that night following a gunbattle with police but defense attorneys described him as the driving force behind the largest mass-casualty attack on U.S. soil since Sept. 11, 2001. "The lead conspirator, the person who started all this and without whom the Boston Marathon bombing would never have occurred, the older brother, is dead ... That presents a problem for the government's request for the death penalty," defense attorney David Bruck told U.S. District Judge George O'Toole.

Video shows fatal Los Angeles police shooting of homeless man

A man views a memorial for a man killed by police on skid row in Los AngelesBy Steve Gorman and Daina Beth Solomon LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Los Angeles police shot and killed a homeless man who grabbed at an officer's gun during a videotaped scuffle, authorities said on Monday, in an incident highlighting the often volatile interactions between law enforcement and mentally ill residents of the city's skid row. The man, known by the street name Africa, had been living for weeks in a tent outside the Union Rescue Mission building where Sunday's shooting occurred and had a history of violent, erratic behavior, the mission's director said. Local civil rights activists called on the city police commission to hold a hearing on the police use of force on skid row, a square-mile area downtown that ranks as one of the largest concentrations of homeless people in United States. Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said officers responding to a robbery call outside the rescue mission "acted compassionately" toward the man who was identified as the suspect "up until the time that force was required." He said the man fought with officers when they tried to take him into custody, then kept resisting as they tried to subdue him with a stun gun.


Florida group to sue FBI in death of friend of Boston bombing suspect

Elena Teyer speaks to reporters following a pre-trial conference for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev at the federal courthouse in BostonBy Barbara Liston ORLANDO, Fla. (Reuters) - A Florida Islamic group announced on Monday it has filed a formal notice with the FBI that it plans to sue the agency for $30 million in the death of Ibragim Todashev, a friend of one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects. Todashev, 27, a Muslim Chechen immigrant, was killed in an Orlando apartment in May 2013 during FBI questioning about his links with the Boston suspects. The FBI said the agent shot Todashev after he attacked him. The notice was filed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida (CAIR-Florida), a civil rights group, on behalf of Todashev's parents who accused the FBI in a statement on Monday of killing their son "in cold blood." Thania Diaz Clevenger, civil rights director for CAIR Florida, said the group was "seeking answers and justice for someone who was shot seven times by an FBI agent in his own home after hours of interrogation." An FBI spokesman said Monday the agency does not comment on pending litigation.
