Massachusetts State Police released thermal images Saturday (April 20) of the surviving suspect of the Boston Marathon bombings lying in the stern of a boat in Watertown, Massachusetts.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured by police after a day-long manhunt on Friday that closed down the city and turned a working-class suburb into a virtual military zone.

Tsarnaev had been hiding in the stern of a boat parked in the backyard of a house in Watertown, police said. A resident called police after spotting blood on the boat.

Bleeding and in serious condition, he was admitted to a Boston hospital after being captured, a Massachusetts State Police spokesman said.

Monday's (April 15) bombing, described by Obama as an act of terrorism, was the worst such attack on US soil since September 11, 2001, and rattled nerves across the United States.
