A first hearing in US federal court in the case of Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been scheduled for May 30, an official in the US prosecutor's office in the city said Monday.

It was not clear if Tsarnaev, charged in his hospital bed with using a weapon of mass destruction in the twin marathon blasts, would be present. The 19-year-old could face the death penalty if convicted.
