Boston bombings: photos from public wanted for calender of pictures from Tsarnaev manhunt
Calender will feature photos of police during the manhunt for the brothers suspected of detonating bombs at the Boston Marathon
A police association in Massachusetts is asking residents in Boston to send in pictures they may have taken of police searching for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing for a calender dedicated to the manhunt.
The Watertown Police Federation said they are looking for "positive" photos captured by the public as Watertown Police searched for Tsarnaev, 20, in the hours following the attack at the Boston Marathon that left three dead and 264 injured on 19 April.
They say the calender is intended to "capture the best of the snapshots" and help raise funds for Watertown Police. They will go on sale for $13 (£8) after the the 30 September submission deadline closes.
The photos featured in the calender will be designed to "highlight the valour" of police searching for Tsarnaev in the Boston suburb.
Tsarnaev's brother Tamerlan, 26, died during a standoff with officers and Tsarnaev was eventually discovered hiding underneath the cover of a boat in a Watertown resident's garden.
The brothers, ethnic Chechens from Russia who moved to America in 2002, are suspected of detonating two pressure cooker bombs close to the finish line of the marathon as runners began to cross.
In a statement, the Watertown Police Federation said: "A project being launched by members of the Watertown Police Foundation is asking for some real snapshots for a 2014 calendar being created to salute the valor of the Watertown Police in dealing with those events – and to commit for posterity some of the most memorable images that were captured at the time."
"The calendar is intended to continue to raise funds for worthwhile projects that support the work of the Watertown Police. Organizers are looking for positive images, photos that highlight the incredible valor of the police and support of the Watertown community."
