The Hill reports:

The two brothers accused of last month’s Boston Marathon terrorist attack initially planned a July 4th attack on the city, The New York Times reported Friday.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, who is in custody awaiting trial, told investigators that he and his brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, who died following a shootout with police, wanted to plant bombs at an Independence Day celebration on the Charles River Esplanade, but settled on the finish line of the Boston Marathon after scouting the city for attack sites.
