Father of Boston suspects plans to fly to US

MAKHACHKALA, Russia (AP) — The father of the two Boston bombing suspects says he will travel from Russia to the United States this week to seek “justice and the truth.”

Anzor Tsarnaev told The Associated Press that he has “lots of questions for the police” and he wants “to clear up many things.”

In the interview on Sunday he said only that he planned to go in several days, but the suspects’ mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, told journalists on Monday that the father plans to fly to the U.S. on Wednesday.

She said the family would try to bring the body of their elder son back to Russia.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a gun battle with police. His 19-year-old brother Dzhokhar was later captured alive but badly wounded.
