Washington: The US federal judge in Boston formally sentenced 21-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death for his role in the 2013 Boston marathon bombing attacks and the killing of a police officer when on the run, media reported on Thursday.

Before the court judge read out the ruling, Tsarnaev broke a two- year silence apologizing to victims for the bombings he and his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev unleashed at the finish line of the marathon in April 2013, which killed three people and injured 260, Xinhua news agency reported.

“I’d like to now apologize to the victims and survivors,” Tsarnaev spoke at the Boston courtroom before the federal judge announced the ruling of sentencing Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death.

“I am sorry for the lives I have taken, for the damage that I have done, the irreparable damage,” he added in low voice. (IANS)

7th of December 1949, the Armed Force Flag Day

Since the 7th of December 1949, the Armed Forces Flag Day has been observed in India, annually. This one day is dedicated towards collection of funds from the citizens of India for the welfare of the ‘Indian Armed Forces personnel’. It has become a tradition to pay respect to the people who have served in the army, Navy and Airforce, on this day.

“The idea behind observing a Flag Day was to distribute small flags to the general population and in return collect donations.” The color-scheme of the flag is very similar to the ones used by fellow Commonwealth members like Cyprus, Kenya and Nigeria. The Flag Day signifies that it is the responsibility of the citizens of India to take care of the families and dependents of the armed forces personnel who fight for the country.
