BOSTON - Après 24 heures d'une vaste chasse à l'homme, la police américaine a annoncé vendredi soir qu'elle avait interpellé un jeune de 19 ans soupçonné d'être, avec son frère tué la nuit précédente, l'auteur des attentats du marathon de Boston.

Djokhar Tsarnaev, qui selon la police est "grièvement blessé" et a été hospitalisé, était caché dans un bateau, entreposé dans un jardin à Watertown, dans la banlieue ouest de Boston, après avoir échappé aux forces de l'ordre à pied la nuit précédente.

L'arrestation du jeune d'origine tchétchène, quatre jours après les attentats qui avaient fait trois morts et près de 180 blessés, a été vécue comme un immense soulagement par les Américains.

Elle a été saluée par des applaudissements, des rires et des cris de joie dans le quartier où il a été interpellé.

"USA, USA", scandaient des Bostoniens descendus dans la rue. Certains arboraient un drapeau américain. D'autres ont fait une haie d'honneur aux véhicules de police et de pompiers qui s'éloignaient.

Djokhar Tsarnaev s'était évaporé dans la nuit de jeudi à vendredi, à l'issue d'une course poursuite avec la police, durant laquelle quelque 200 coups de feu avaient été échangés. Son frère Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26 ans, avait été tué durant la nuit, mais l'adolescent avait réussi à disparaître après avoir abandonné sa voiture.

Selon le chef de la police Ed Davis, c'est durant cette course poursuite, entamée après que les deux frères eurent tué un policier de 26 ans sur le campus du Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) de Cambridge, que le jeune homme a été blessé.

Un homme avait appelé la police vendredi, après avoir vu du sang sur le bateau dans le jardin.

La police a affirmé que le jeune homme était "la seule personne" qu'elle recherchait pour l'instant.

"Beaucoup de questions sans réponse"

Vendredi soir, le président Obama s'est réjoui de ce dénouement et salué le travail des forces de l'ordre. Mais il a souligné qu'il restait encore "beaucoup de questions sans réponse" dans cette affaire.

La question du motif notamment reste entière. Et les enquêteurs devront aussi déterminer si les deux frères ont bénéficié de complicités, aux Etats-Unis ou à l'étranger.

Toute la journée vendredi, alors que des milliers de policiers traquaient Djokhar Tsarnaev, la population de Boston avait reçu l'ordre de rester enfermée chez elle. Les transports en commun avaient été arrêtés, magasins et écoles fermés, survol d'avion interdit. Les trains ne circulaient pas entre New York et Boston.

Les deux frères avaient immigré en 2003 aux Etats-Unis, et vivaient depuis plusieurs années à Cambridge, dans la banlieue de Boston, a raconté un oncle, Ruslan Tsarni, "honteux" de leur implication dans les attentats du marathon, qui avaient ravivé aux Etats-Unis le souvenir du 11-Septembre.

L'aîné interrogé en 2011 par le FBI

Leur père les a décrits comme "des musulmans fervents", depuis la capitale du Daguestan, Makhatchkala.

Le président de Tchétchénie, république du Caucase russe majoritairement musulmane, a souligné qu'ils n'avaient "pas vécu en Tchétchénie". "Ils ont vécu et étudié aux Etats-Unis (...) Il faut trouver les racines du mal en Amérique".

L'aîné, ex-étudiant ingénieur devenu boxeur, avait une page Youtube à son nom, créée en août 2012, où il avait marqué plusieurs vidéos comme favorites dans les catégories "islam" et "terrorisme".

Le FBI a indiqué qu'il l'avait interrogé en 2011 "à la demande d'un gouvernement étranger" non précisé. Mais la police fédérale n'avait trouvé "aucune information suspecte".

Le plus jeune, qui faisait de la lutte, était inscrit dans une université de la région. Il avait selon les médias américains obtenu la nationalité américaine le 11 septembre 2012, date on ne peut plus symbolique de terrorisme aux Etats-Unis. Les témoignages le décrivent comme un jeune agréable, mais fasciné par son aîné.

Les deux hommes sont soupçonnés d'avoir déposé les deux bombes artisanales qui ont explosé près de la ligne d'arrivée du marathon.

Les deux bombes avaient été placées dans des cocottes-minute remplies de clous et de billes d'acier pour en maximiser les dégâts.

Elles avaient explosé à 12 secondes d'intervalle, alors que des dizaines de milliers de personnes étaient massées au centre de Boston pour ce qui est chaque année une grande fête populaire.

Monday's blasts near the finishing line raised fears of a terrorist attack more than a decade after nearly 3,000 people were killed in suicide airliner strikes on New York, Washington and Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001. US President Barack Obama went on national television to warn against "jumping to conclusions" but a senior White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said such an attack was "clearly an act of terror."

The Washington Post has published a long account of investigators' exhaustive efforts to find the Boston Marathon suspects using mountains of video footage and photographs, as well as other leads. An excerpt:

Quickly, the authorities secured a warehouse in Boston’s Seaport district and filled the sprawling space: On half of the vast floor, hundreds of pieces of bloody clothes were laid out to dry so they could be examined for forensic clues or flown to FBI labs at Quantico in Prince William County for testing. In the other half of the room, more than a dozen investigators sifted through hundreds of hours of video, looking for people “doing things that are different from what everybody else is doing,” Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis said in an interview Saturday. The work was painstaking and mind-numbing: One agent watched the same segment of video 400 times.

CBS News reports that Boston bombing suspect captured on Friday night suffered at least two bullet wounds, and that one of them may be evidence that he tried to end his own life.

The bullet wound to the neck, which has an exit wound in the back of the 19-year-old’s neck, “is very possibly a suicide attempt,” said Miller, a former assistant director at the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The Daily News reports:

The two men, known to neighbors by their first names Azmat and Diaz — who share a black BMW SUV adorned with a novelty license plate that reads “Terrorista #1” — were cuffed and hauled out of their Carriage Dr. apartment shortly before 4 p.m.

The apparent arrests occurred about 30-45 minutes after authorities with the FBI, ICE and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security descended on the Hidden Brook Apartment complex.

The Guardian has an account of the dead bombing suspect's 2012 voyage to Dagestan, a small, troubled region of Russia where he had once lived:

According to US travel records, Tsarnaev arrived at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport on 12 January, returning on 17 July. He spent time in Makhachkala that summer. "It was 40C and he was wearing these American boots," said Larissa Abakarova, who maintains a shop across the street from the home of the parents of Tsarnaev and his brother, Dzhokhar, who was arrested late on Friday. "He was stylish, kind, good-looking. I'm in shock."

The Washington Post has a new story that fills in many details of the Tsarnaev brothers' bloody path to Watertown, including their murder of an MIT Cop:

Just after 10:30 p.m. Thursday, the pair walked up to a parked police car at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where Sean Collier, a 26-year-old campus officer, was nearing the end of his 3-to-11 p.m. shift.

A security camera would later show two men approaching the car and speaking to the officer. Abruptly, one of the men was seen pulling a gun and shooting Collier multiple times, including once in the head. Some officers concluded that the shooting was an effort to provoke a larger confrontation with police.

“They were looking to start something,” one official said.

Ruslan Tsarni says he grew concerned about Tamerlan Tsarnaev (tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) when he told him in a 2009 phone conversation that he had chosen "God's business" over work or school. Tsarni said he then contacted a family friend who told him Tsarnaev had been influenced by a recent convert to Islam.

A doctor involved in treating the Boston Marathon bombing suspect who died in a gunbattle with police says he had injuries head to toe and all limbs intact when he arrived at the hospital.

Dr. David Schoenfeld said 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev was unconscious and had so many penetrating wounds when he arrived at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center early Friday that it isn't clear which ones killed him, and a medical examiner will have to determine the cause of death.

The New York Times reports that the decision to release the photos of the marathon bombing suspects to the public was a major turning point in the investigation.

The authorities knew that broadly distributing the images — some captured by ubiquitous surveillance cameras and cellphone snapshots and winnowed down using sophisticated facial-recognition software — would accelerate the digital dragnet, but they did not realize the level of chaos it would create.

Intelligence and law enforcement officials said the authorities in Boston weighed the risks of some mayhem against their growing fear that time was slipping away and that heavily armed and increasingly dangerous men, and possibly accomplices, could wage new attacks in the Boston area or beyond.

His actions may have been vital in helping police catch the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, even after the attacks both his legs were amputated from the knee down. Now some of that heroism is being returned.

Nearly 10,000 people have now donated to Bucks for Bauman, an effort to help pay the medical expenses of Jeff Bauman, the Boston Marathon bombing survivor known not only for a now iconic -- and extremely graphic -- photo, but also for helping the FBI identify at least one of the bombing suspects. Set up by his friends on the crowdfunding site GoFundMe, the fund has already raised more than $360,000 since last Tuesday to help pay for Bauman’s devastating injuries.

WATERTOWN, Mass. -- Friday morning in the Boston area began in a tense silence, as the sprawling manhunt for an alleged teenaged terrorist forced city residents indoors for their own safety. Friday night, however, ended with spontaneous parades celebrating his capture.

As 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was pulled wounded from his backyard boat hideout and raced to Beth Israel Hospital in police custody, many Bostonians finally exhaled, after a devastating week that began with the double bombings at Monday’s Boston marathon. The suspect's brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was killed Friday morning in a shootout with police.

"CAPTURED!!!" trumpeted the Boston Police Department on Twitter Friday night. "The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won. Suspect in custody."
