A federal grand jury indictment has charged Boston Marathong bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev with 30 counts, including detonating a weapon of mass destruction resulting in deaths.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been accused of carrying out the twin bombing near the finish line of the Boston Marathon together with his brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

The younger Tsarnaev will also face charges of killing a police officer at the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology during a frantic police chase of the two brothers in the days after the bombing.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed during a shootout with police during the manhunt, while Dzhokhar suffered nonfatal wounds and was later detained, RIA Novosti reminds.
Three people were killed in the Boston Marathon attack, including an 8-year-old boy, while more than 260 were injured.
