New York Post sued for libel over Boston Bombings coverage

Two young men claim cover photo implied they were suspects

The New York Post is facing the consequences for a controversial cover it ran three days after the Boston Marathon bombings.

Two young men—16-year-old Salaheddin Barhoum and 24-year-old Yassine Zaimi—are suing the News Corp.-owned paper and five of its journalists for libel after they were featured in a front-page photo that they say implied they were the bombing suspects.
