Father of Boston bomb suspects to fly from Russia to U.S.
(CNN) -- Hours after talking at length with U.S. and Russian authorities,
the father of the two suspects in last week's deadly Boston Marathon attack
is set to fly to the United States -- and cooperate with authorities -- an
activist working with the family told CNN.
Anzor Tsarnaev told Russia's state-run RIA Novosti that he and his wife,
Zubeidat, will leave the semi-autonomous southern Russian republic of
Dagestan on Thursday. Authorities from various U.S. government agencies did
not immediately confirm the Tsarnaevs' travel plans.
According to the official Russian news report, a police source said
Wednesday that the suspects' parents consented to their U.S. trip and "will
be involved in the U.S. investigation."
After that report came out, human rights activist Kheda Saratova told CNN
that only the father, Anzor, would travel to the United States as early as
The news of the impending travel comes nine days after three people died and
scores were wounded when two bombs exploded at the marathon's finish line.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died days later following an early morning shootout
with police. His body remained unclaimed Wednesday, according to Terrel
Harris, a spokesman for Massachusetts' chief medical examiner's office. The
exact cause of his death has not been determined.
His brother Dzhokhar was captured the next night after being found hidden
inside a boat in the backyard of a Watertown, Massachusetts, home.
Characterized in fair condition at a Boston hospital, the 19-year-old
suspect has been communicating with authorities.
So, too, have his parents.
On Wednesday, FBI agents were in Makhachkala, Dagestan -- a city that
Tamerlan called home for several months in 2012 -- to talk with the suspects
' parents. The "conversation" -- which included members of Russia's Federal
Security Service -- ended Wednesday evening, the men's mother told Saratova.
Both Anzor Tsarnaev and his wife have publicly insisted they believe their
children are innocent.
Zubeidat Tsarnaev has said she's convinced her boys were framed "just
because they were Muslim."
When asked whether she thinks her younger son will get a fair trial, she
replied, "Only Allah will know."

It's not clear if Zubeidat Tsarnaev might not return to the United States
because she's in legal trouble there.
She faces three felony charges for alleged shoplifting and property damage
in Massachusetts in 2012, according to Natick District Court. She jumped
bail, and there has been an arrest warrant for her since October, the court'
s clerk magistrate Brian Kearney said.
Zubeidat Tsarnaev and her husband moved to Dagestan from the United States.
The family is originally from the embattled Russian republic of Chechnya but
fled from the brutal wars there in the 1990s. The two brothers were born in
Kyrgyzstan and moved at different times to the United States.
The family's adopted republic has become a focus for investigators,
especially given that Tamerlan Tsarnaev went there during a six-month trip
to Russia last year.
Officials have been looking into what he may have done there during that
time, though Tamerlan's father has said his son was with him throughout the
trip. The young man is believed to have posted videos online tied to
militant jihadists in the region.
On two occasions before that -- in March and late September 2011 -- Russian
authorities asked U.S authorities to investigate Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
They provided "basically the same information" both times, a U.S. government
official said. A senior U.S. official with direct knowledge of the
information said that the case from Russia "was extremely thin," adding that
the European country wanted Tamerlan Tsarnaev questioned to see if he and
others had become "radicalized."

Police: Suspects may have planned NYC 'party'
What did the Tsarnaev brothers want to do days after inflicting pain and
carnage in the Massachusetts capital?
According to New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, the brothers'
destination may have been New York City and their plan may have been to "
Kelly said information collected from the surviving suspect included "
something about a party or having a party."
"It may have been words to the effect of coming 'to party' in New York,"
The man who was carjacked and held hostage -- allegedly by the Tsarnaev
brothers -- just outside Boston last week said he thought he heard the two
men say "Manhattan" in their conversation, the commissioner said. The one-
time hostage has told investigators the suspects spoke in another language,
which may have been Chechen or Russian, while he drove with them.

The surviving suspect, Dzhokhar, has indicated that his older brother
Tamerlan masterminded the attack and described he and his brother as self-
radicalized jihadists, according to a U.S. government source.
The teenager cited the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as motivating
factors behind the attack, a U.S. government official said.
Dzhokhar told authorities that neither he nor his brother had had any
contact with terrorist groups overseas, the U.S. government official said.
But the official cautioned that the interviews were preliminary and that
Tsarnaev's account needs to be checked out.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been charged with using and conspiring to use a weapon
of mass destruction resulting in death and one count of malicious
destruction of property by means of an explosive device resulting in death.
The suspects' uncle said a friend of Tamerlan's "brainwashed" him. And the
suspects' former brother-in-law said Tamerlan seemed to be influenced in
Islam by a friend named Misha, but that he did not see Misha try to
Investigators had no immediate comment on reports of someone named "Misha."
Investigators are looking into the possibility Tamerlan Tsarnaev -- who was
married with a young daughter, whom he frequently cared for while his wife
worked as a home health aide -- may have helped finance the bomb plot
through drug sales, according to a source familiar with the investigation.

Of the more than 260 people who were hurt, 33 remain hospitalized Wednesday
night, according to a CNN tally. One person is in critical condition at
Boston Medical Center.
In Cambridge, mourners gathered at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
campus to honor Campus Officer Sean Collier, the fourth person killed last
week. Authorities believe the Tsarnaev brothers shot Collier as he sat in
his patrol car Thursday night.
