Focus of Boston Marathon bomb investigation shifts to suspects' mother
BOSTON (WABC) -- The focus of the Boston Marathon bombings investigation has shifted to the suspects' mother, who was apparently recorded by Russian intelligence talking on the phone with one of her sons and discussing jihad last year.
Russians authorities passed on their concerns to the FBI and the CIA, but the recording wasn't passed on to the until just a few days ago.Investigators say that if Zubeidat Tsarnaeva came to this country, she would probably be detained and questioned. Her view, however, is quite different. She says she's no terrorist, just someone who found a deeper spirituality and shared it with her children, including suspected bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. "It's all lies and hypocrisy," she told The Associated Press in Dagestan. "I'm sick and tired of all this nonsense that they make up about me and my children. People know me as a regular person, and I've never been mixed up in any criminal intentions, especially any linked to terrorism." Meanwhile, husband and father Anzor Tsarnaev says he has postponed his trip from Russia to the United States because of poor health. There are also concerns over whether the brothers had help in constructing their bombs. Some members of Congress say that the sophistication seems to indicate there had to be someone who trained them. CLICK HERE TO SEE PHOTOS FROM THE SCENE OF THE BOSTON MARATHON EXPLOSIONS
