BOSTON (AP) - Supporters of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev  have cheered a caravan of vehicles carrying the Boston Marathon bombing suspect to his arraignment.

A four-vehicle motorcade that included a van, Humvee and a state police car have arrived at the federal courthouse in Boston.

A group of about a dozen Tsarnaev supporters cheered as the motorcade arrived. The demonstrators yelled "Justice for Jahar," as Tsarnaev is known. One woman held a sign that said "Free Jahar."

Tsarnaev is charged with using a weapon of mass destruction in the bombings that killed three people and wounded more than 260. He could face the death penalty.

Bombing survivors will be watching the court hearing. It's the suspect's first appearance since he was found bleeding and hiding in a boat days after the April 15 explosion.
