Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has returned to the courtroom for the first time since July 2013.

Tsarnaev’s final pre-trial hearing is under way in Boston. Jury selection for his federal trial begins on January 5.

The suspect was led into the courtroom by US marshals.

He was wearing a black sweater and grey trousers, and was sporting a scruffy beard. He smiled to his attorneys and one patted him on the arm.

The courtroom was packed with FBI agents, police who worked on the case and more than a dozen survivors and family members.

Tsarnaev faces the possibility of the death penalty if he is convicted in the April 2013 bombings, which killed three people and injured more than 260.
