A friend of one of the men suspected of carrying out the Boston Marathon bombing has been convicted of hindering the investigation into the attack.

Azamat Tazhayakov discarded Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s laptop and backpack in the days after the 15 April 2013 attack.

Tazhayakov, a Kazakhstan national who faces up to 20 years in prison, said another man threw out the potential evidence.

Three people died and more than 260 were injured in the blasts.
