Officials: One bombing suspect was in terror database
BOSTON, MA -- U.S. officials say the name of the dead suspect in the Boston marathon bombings was added to a U.S. government terrorism database about 18 months before the attacks.
The officials say Russia contacted the CIA in the fall of 2011 with concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
The Russians also contacted the FBI about Tsarnaev earlier that year. The FBI conducted an investigation and did not find he had any terror connections.
