CBS: Boston Bombing Suspect Left Note In Boat Where He Was Hiding

Alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev left a note in the boat where he was hiding before being detained by authorities, CBS News correspondent John Miller reported Thursday.

In the note, Tsarnaev reportedly said the marathon bombings were retaliation for what the United States did to Muslims in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. He also described his deceased brother and the second bombing suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, as a martyr who was already in paradise.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is said to have written the note with a pen on the wall of the Watertown, Mass. boat where he was hiding as authorities pursued him.
