Marathon Bombers’ Father Coming to U-S; Mother Not Sure

MAKHACHKALA, Russia (AP) — The father of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects says he will leave Russia for the United States in the next day or two.


But the suspects’ mother says she’s still thinking it over. She was charged with shoplifting while she was in the United States last summer, but says she’s been assured by lawyers that she would not be arrested.

She says she wishes she’d never moved her family members to the United States, claiming that the U.S. failed to protect them.

The Tsarnaev family emigrated to the U.S. a decade ago, but both parents returned to Russia last year.
