Boston Bombings: Footage Of Suspect Hiding

A video has been released by police showing the operation to capture the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.
Thermal imaging footage from a helicopter depicts a glowing white mass - Dzhokhar Tsarnaev hiding in a boat before he was detained by officers.
One section of the video was of a police vehicle using an extended robotic arm to remove a tarpaulin covering the vessel while others showed officers detonating incendiary devices on the boat.
Tsarnaev, 19, was captured late on Friday after a gunfight with police that ended the city-wide search.
The suspect remains under armed guard in hospital unable to speak, as investigators try to find a motive for the attack.
His brother Tamerlan, 26, died earlier on Friday after a shootout with the police. Officers are working to determine whether the two ethnic Chechen brothers accused of the attack acted alone.
Dzhokhar had been hiding in the boat that was parked in the garden of a house in the suburb of Watertown. He was captured after the owner spotted blood on the boat and called the police.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is being treated at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre in Boston.
Residents in Watertown have held a vigil to remember those who were killed and injured in the attacks.
As night fell, those gathered at the Watertown High School lit candles as a mark of respect for the victims.
Investigators are trying to establish whether the brothers had assistance leading up to the detonation of bombs made in pressure cookers and packed with ball bearings and nails.
Three people died in the attacks at Monday's marathon and another 176 were injured.
A law enforcement source said Tamerlan Tsarnaev travelled to Moscow in January 2012 and spent six months in the region.
But it remains unclear what he did while he was there, or whether he had contact with militant Islamist groups in southern Russia's restive Caucasus region.
The FBI, which interviewed Tamerlan in 2011 after he was flagged by Russian authorities, believes the older brother was the leader of the pair.
Investigators are checking on people who had contact with both brothers to see if anyone else was involved.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was shot in the throat and could not speak because of injuries to his tongue, said a source close to the investigation.
It was unclear when he would be able to talk or when he would be charged.
"It's serious ... he's not yet able to speak," Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick told reporters.
"We have a million questions - and those questions need to be answered."
Meanwhile, the family that found Dzhokhar bloodied and hiding in their garden have spoken about the discovery of the suspect.
David Hennebury tipped off the authorities after he noticed blood under a tarpaulin covering his boat.
His stepson Robert Duffy said: "As soon as the ban on going out was lifted they went outside and walked around. The wind had picked up and the tarp on the boat had kind of lifted, which he found strange.
"He went over to the boat for a closer look and found a strap that had been cut - not torn or worn through.
"He noticed a small amount of blood in this area and when he went under the tarp he saw a small pool of blood immediately there.
"He looked forward and because the tarp obscured a lot of sunlight, he saw what he believed to be a crumpled body bloodied in the front of the boat.
"He immediately panicked, dropped off the ladder and called 911, and with all of the SWAT and physical police presence right there in that neighbourhood and street, they descended on them and immediately evacuated them.
"So they are safe, that's the most important thing, and the suspect has been apprehended."
While the brothers are believed to be behind Monday's twin explosions, their mother Zubeidat said she did not believe they were responsible.
"I am like 100% sure that this is a set-up," she said. "My two sons are really innocent and I know that neither of them have never talked about whatever they're saying about now.
"My youngest one was raised from eight years in America and my oldest son he was really properly raised in my house. No one talked about terrorism."
During their getaway attempt, the brothers apparently killed Massachusetts Institute of Technology policeman Sean Collier and severely wounded another officer.
