Victims of the Boston Marathon bombing have arrived at court for opening statements in the trial of the man accused of carrying out the attack.

Two busloads of people hurt in the bombings arrived at the federal courthouse in Boston and entered through a side entrance, away from reporters and photographers gathered at the main entrance.

Marc Fucarile, who lost a leg in the blast, went in the front entrance but did not comment to reporters.

Lawyers for suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will try to show that at the time of the bombings he was influenced by his older brother Tamerlan, who died following a shootout with police days after the bombings.

Prosecutors say the younger brother was an equal and willing participant in the plot.

Three people were killed and more than 260 hurt when twin bombs exploded near the marathon’s finish line seconds apart on April 15 2013.
