The writings were allegedly scribbled in pencil by Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev inside the boat where he hid before his arrest. "I am jealous of my brother who has received the ward of Jannatul Firdaus (inshallah) before me," the writing states. "I do not mourn because his soul is very much alive." Jannat ul Firdaus refers to the highest level of paradise in Islam.
The jury also saw newly released surveillance footage of the attacks, which identify Tsarnaev at the scene, and heard witness testimony from victims and police officers.
