Boston - Jurors in the trial of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have been shown the boat in which he was captured.

The jury was brought to the bullet-riddled boat on Monday morning. They walked around the outside of the vessel, taking notes.

Then they were taken two at a time onto a lift, so they could look inside to see the note Tsarnaev wrote in pencil on the boat.

The note is speckled with at least 10 bullet holes and stained with long streaks of blood. In it, Tsarnaev denounced the US for its wars in Muslim countries.

Tsarnaev watched impassively from a table about 15m away. He was flanked by his attorneys.

Three people were killed and more than 260 injured in the 2013 marathon bombings.
