The father of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing claims that his son who is still on the loose is a smart and accomplished young man.
Anzor Tsarnaev spoke with The Associated Press by telephone from the Russian city of Makhachkala today after police said one of his sons,26-year-old Tamerlan,had been killed in a shootout and the other,Dzhokhar,was being intensely pursued.
My son is a true angel, the elder Tsarnaev said. Dzhokhar is a second-year medical student in the US. He is such an intelligent boy. We expected him to come on holidays here.
