While at court for his formal death sentencing Wednesday, Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev apologized to the victims of his deadly 2013 attack.

“I am sorry for the lives that I’ve taken,” Tsarnaev said in court. “For the suffering I caused you, for the damage I’ve done, irreparable damage.”

“I want to ask forgiveness from Allah,” Tsarnaev said. “I want to express gratitude to Allah…I pray to Allah to bestow his mercy upon the deceased…I ask Allah to have mercy upon me, upon my brother, upon my family…Praise be to Allah. Thank you.”

Before speaking, Tsarnaev heard from the victims who addressed him to his face in the courtroom. Victims inside the courtroom gave emotional speeches detailing their trauma and their feelings about Tsarnaev as he listened on.

The words from Richard Donohue, the officer who was shot pursuing the brothers, showed the difficulty the tragedy has caused him.
