BOSTON (AP) - Jurors in the trial of a friend of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) have resumed deliberations in his obstruction of justice trial.

Azamat Tazhayakov (AZ'-maht tuh-ZAY'-uh-kahv) is accused with another friend of removing items from Tsarnaev's dorm room three days after the attack. Three people were killed and more than 260 were injured when two bombs exploded near the finish line of the 2013 marathon.

Prosecutors say Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev (DY'-us kah-dur-BY'-ehv) took Tsarnaev's backpack containing fireworks that had been emptied of their explosive powder from Tsarnaev's dorm room hours after the FBI released images of Tsarnaev as a suspect.

Tazhayakov's lawyers say it was Kadyrbayev who removed the items and later threw them away.

Jury deliberations that started Wednesday resumed Monday.
