Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's mother, Zubeidat, bashed Americans as "terrorists" Wednesday on social media for convicting her son - "the best of the best" - of 30 federal counts for the Boston Marathon bombing. A jury is now contemplating whether he will get the death penalty.

"I will never forget it. May god bless those who helped my son. The terrorists are the Americans and everyone knows it. My son is the best of the best," she posted in Russian on VKontakte, a social media site, Vocativ reported. Her post was on "Support for Dzhokhar," a group created on VKontakte by a family friend.

Of the 30 counts he faced, 17 carried the death penalty.

Tsarnaev and his older brother, Tamerlan, planted two pressure-cooker bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, 2013, killing three people and injuring more than 260.

The three killed in the grisly bombings were Martin Richard, 8; Lu Lingzi, 23; and Krystle Campbell, 29.

The FBI posted photos of the Tsarnaev brothers on TV and social media in the hunt for the bombing suspects.

Right after the 2013 bombing, she told CNN that the event was a fake and the blood on Boylston Street wasn't blood but paint. From her home in Dagestan, she claimed at the time that her sons were being framed for their Muslim beliefs.

As the two Chechen brothers fled, they fatally shot Sean Collier, 27, a police officer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who was sitting in his cruiser, and then they carjacked a separate vehicle. The car's driver escaped at a gas station.

Tamerlan, 26, died in a shootout with police on a narrow residential street.

The younger Tsarnaev, who was 19 at the time, was captured in Watertown hiding in a boat in a resident's backyard after an intense door-to-door search.

In the courtroom, Tsarnaev, now 21, kept his hands folded on this lap and showed no emotion as the verdict was read.
