From Boston to Paris, terrorism acts abound

The trial of 21-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is expected to get under way Jan. 26 in a federal courtroom in Boston. Jury selection has already begun.
You may remember that Tsarnaev is accused of the bombing that killed three people and injured nearly 260 people at the Boston Marathon nearly two years ago.
According to news accounts, his attorneys are expected to argue that Tsarnaev was under the mind control of his older brother (by seven years), Tamerlan, who was killed in a shootout with police after the bombing. Typical defense: blame the dead person.
