Boston bombing jury sees gory photos of blast victims
News ImageBy Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - The jury in the Boston Marathon bombing trial heard graphic testimony and saw autopsy photos of the second of the three people killed in the April 15, 2013 attack. Shrapnel from one of the homemade pressure cooker bombs set off by a pair of ethnic Chechen brothers punched through Chinese exchange student Lingzi Lu's legs, causing the 23-year old to bleed to death within minutes, Boston medical examiner Katherine Lindstrom testified on Monday. "Her injuries were caused by debris hitting her body and going through her body," Boston medical examiner Katherine Lindstrom said. "They would have been very painful." Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 21, is charged with the bombing attack that also injured 264 people, as well as shooting Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer Sean Collier dead three days later as he and his older brother prepared to flee the city.

One dead, one hurt as men try to ram U.S. spy agency gates: reports
Guards shot one man dead and seriously wounded a second when they tried to ram a vehicle into the entrance gate at the Fort Meade, Maryland, headquarters of the National Security Agency on Monday, news reports said. Federal law enforcement officials told Reuters that two people in a car tried to ram the spy agency's gate and initial indications are that at least one was seriously injured. White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz said: "The President has been briefed on this morning's incident at the National Security Agency and will be updated as appropriate." NBC, quoting sources, said the men, disguised as women, were in a stolen car. The other, a dark vehicle, had front-end damage. Mon, 30 Mar 2015 12:02:18 -0400
