A Boston SWAT team member gets in position as they search for 19-year-old bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. After a car chase and shootout with police, one suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was shot and killed by police, and his brother Dzhokhar was found hiding in a boat in a Watertown resident's backyard. The two men are suspects in the bombings at the Boston Marathon that killed three people and wounded at least 170.

Meanwhile, gold retailers struggled to cope as parents buying dowries, casual shoppers and tourists snapped up bars, coins, nuggets and jewellery as a slump in the price of the yellow metal released years of pent-up retail demand.
