Boston bombing suspects' father: My kids were framed (Part 2)
MAKHACHKALA. April 19 (Interfax) - An Interfax correspondent has managed to talk on the phone with a man introducing himself as Anzor, the father of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who are suspected of committing the Boston Marathon bomb attack on Monday.
"I learned about the incident from TV. My opinion is: the special services have framed my children, because they are practicing Muslims. Why did they kill Tamerlan? He was supposed to be caught alive. The younger is on the run now. He was a sophomore at a medical school in the U.S. We expected him to come home for vacation. Now I don't know what's going to happen. Tell you once again: I believe special services have framed my children," the man said.
Anzor categorically declined the offer of meeting in person.
U.S. law enforcement bodies earlier identified the Boston Marathon bombing suspects as Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev coming from Russia's North Caucasus.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was reported to have been fatally shot in an exchange of fire with police. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, is believed to be hiding in Watertown, a Boston suburb.
Local television identified the men as those coming from Chechnya, while AP said they come from a region near Chechnya.
