Boston Marathon bombing trial to start with jury selection

BOSTON - Some 1,200 potential jurors are due to report to federal court in Boston beginning on Monday as selection begins for the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, charged with the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing that killed three people and wounded more than 260 others.
Tsarnaev, a 21-year-old ethnic Chechen who is a naturalized US citizen, could get the death penalty if convicted. He has pleaded not guilty to all 30 charges against him.
Tsarnaev, due to be in court on Monday, is accused of detonating a pair of homemade bombs placed amid a crowd of thousands of spectators at the race's finish line on April 15, 2013.
