Financial struggles no barriers for Boston bomber
Sydney: The accused in the Boston Marathon bombings, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were reportedly under heavy financial crisis but this did not stop them from perpetrating their terror mayhem for less than a hundred dollars.
The large-scale terror attack was planned and executed by the brothers, despite financial crunches, the Boston Globe reports.
US officials have confirmed that a remote-controlled detonator was used in the attack that killed three people and injured 260 others, adding that the detonators were ``close controlled`` and even the bombs were not of a very sophisticated kind.
According to the report, the surviving bombing suspect, Dzhokhar was seen operating a mobile phone minutes before the first explosion and the criminal complaints registered against him charge him for using mobile to trigger bombings which have also been used earlier in war zones.
The brothers underwent long financial struggles but that could not stop them from carrying out a heinous attack using inexpensive, homemade bombs, the report added.
