Boston - FBI agents have testified they found bomb components in Dzokhar Tsarnaev's family apartment in Cambridge and other parts purchased by his brother.

Agents on Wednesday described finding nails, BBs, pressure cooker parts and other items similar to those used in two pressure-cooker bombs that exploded near the marathon's finish line on 15 April 2013.

The items were discovered during a search four days after the terror attack, which killed three people and injured more than 260 others.

Tsarnaev's lawyers have admitted that he and his older brother, Tamerlan, planted and detonated the bombs. But they say Tamerlan Tsarnaev, now dead, was the mastermind of the attack.

Prosecutors say they could rest their case as soon as Thursday.
