BOSTON -- The surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings scribbled a note inside the hull of the boat where he was hiding when he was caught, police said.
Investigators said the note explained why Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother planned the attack.
“The bombings were in retaliation for American attacks against Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq,” it reportedly read.
Officers found Tsarnaev inside the boat in a Boston suburb after a day-long manhunt. He's now in a federal prison hospital and is charged with using a weapon of mass destruction.
