Washington, Apr 22 (EFE).- Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the alleged co-author of the Boston Marathon bombings, will not be treated as an enemy combatant and will be tried in a civilian court, the White House announced Monday.
"He will not be treated as an enemy combatant. We will process this terrorist through our system of justice," spokesman Jay Carney said at his daily press briefing.
As a U.S. citizen, the 19-year-old Tsarnaev cannot be tried by a military tribunal, the spokesman pointed out.
