Boston Bombing Suspects 'Identified' As Brothers From Russia, Near Chechnya-AP

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
By Associated Press

AP sources identify the surviving Boston bomber as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19. The man is said to be from Russia’s south, not far from the Chechen Republic.

The man reportedly lived in Turkey before arriving legally in the US at least a year ago.

The name is listed among the recipients of Cambridge scholarships in 2011.

The second suspect is said to be his brother Tamerlan, 26.

An NBC report claims the two immigrated at least two years ago. One of the brothers is  said to have a Massachusetts drivers’ license.

Some reports say the two may have arrived in the US from Turkey and have Turkish citizenship.

There is a page at the Russian social network VKontakte (In Contact) with the name Dzhokhar Tsarnaev living in Boston and studying at Cambridge Rindge & Latin School.

The Cambridge school mentions Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as its athlete of the month for February 2011, saying that he is an athlete.

The VKontakte page studied by RT mentions a school in Makhachkala, the capital of the Republic of Dagestan, as a place Tsarnaev studied between 1999 and 2001.

The Tsarnaev family moved to Dagestan from Kyrgyzstan in 2001, the school spokesman told RT. Dzhokhar studied there for just one year and  produced no particular impression, good or bad, on the teachers.

Dzhokhar has several Chechen-related interests stated in his profile. He states that he speaks Russian, English and Chechen and holds career and money as his personal priorities. He claims he is a believer in Islam.

The page has but a handful of posts, most of them jokes. The owner’s last visit of the page was from a mobile phone shortly before the shooting in Boston started.

Some Russian-language comments on the page accuse Tsarnaev of being behind the bombing. They were posted after the news of a possible connection of a Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to the bombing broke.

"-HAVE U EVER HEARD A MUSLIM THAT BEARS TAVAVHS..". To start with, that is not their names. So nobody is talking about any one with such a name. Then to show how wrong you are by disclaiming their muhammadan origin, their father, who spoke from Russia, acknowledged their paternity and said that they were good muslims who had never seen a gun. The trouble with his position is that he last saw them ten years ago. Between then and now so much transformation had taken place.
You keep on contradicting yourself by saying that America wants to destroy islam while gloating how some rappers who have converted to muhammadanism and are happy. If America wanted to eradicat islam, would she have allowed her citizens to convert? The truth is that America cuddles islam. Americans have, regrettably, died for islam to their own detriment. How I wish the Americans were not as foolish as they are, particularly now.

@'@KENNETH:DOES ISLAM' BY ANONYMOUS

"-WILL THE ACTION TAKERS BE KILLING ITS BELIEVERS?". The answer is yes because the quran says that anyone who leaves his deen should be killed. We have heard how some muhammadans have been branded hypocrites for varoius reasons even when they still profess faith in the religion. Muhammad started it by setting fire to the mosque at Dhu Awan and killing those who could not flee because he said that they were 'unjust people'. He also said that towards the end, his followers will disintegrate into 73 sects out of which only one will make it to paradise. Certainly, muhammadanism encourages, glorifies and rewards killings. I don't need to think twice.

"--I LOVE THE WAY THEY LINKED THE SUSPECTS TO ISLAM..WE HAVE BEEN EXPECTING IT-". In the end it has been proved that there was no exaggeration or bias. The linkage was perfectly correct. Who else inhales and exhales terrorism?
The Ayatollah also said:"YOU,YOUNG PEOPLE OF THE NEW GENERATION,TRY TO THINK MORE CLEARLY. STOP TURNING TOWARDS SCIENCE AND ITS LAWS WHICH HAVE LED SO MANY AMONG YOU TO NEGLECT YOUR MAJOR RESPONSIBILITY". It is a known fact that the two terrorist brothers were in engineering and medical sciences. In keeping with the Ayatollah's order, they had to abandon their study and profession for the major responsibility of mass killing.
Imam Khomeini also said:"KILLING IS A FORM OF MERCY BECAUSE IT RECTIFIES THE PERSON. SOMETIMES A PERSON CANNOT BE REFORMED UNLESS HE IS CUT UP AND BURNED-". By packaging the bombs in pressure cookers, the jihadists did what the Ayatollah advocated. The victims were cut up and burned.THIS IS MY 2ND REPLY TO THIS POST.

"FOOLISH PPL LYK U ARE NOT NEEDED ON DS SITE--PLS IF U DNT HV ANY MEANING AND REASONABLE THING TO SAY. NONSENSE".
The truth is hard and even dangerous to some people. But the truth must be told at every turn no matter whose ox is gored. If you are uncomfortable with the undiluted truth you see in my posts, advice yourself and stay off this blog. This is a social media which is available to all and sundry equally; even though they are boko haramist or jihadists among the site administrators. This is seen in the way they refuse to publish certain comments submitted for publication. I have much to say and will continue to do so irrespective of your irrelevant feeling.
THE FIRST REPLY TO THIS POST WAS SUBMITTED VERY EARLY THIS MORNING. IT HAS NOT BEEN PUBLISHED. THAT IS WHY I AM SENDING IN A SECOND ONE. SR, LIVE UP TO EXPECTATION.

To my Northern brothers, let us clamour for 'Amnesty'!

Please join me to call on President Obama to set up a 'Presidential Amnesty Committee' to consider granting 'amnesty' to the Boston bombers (including the dead one). The 'Amnesty' package should include $3 million each to the bombers, $20 million to their 'sponsors' and a little 'something' for their families. The package should include gifts of Houses, and a 'Presidential reception' at the White House. Why not?

After all, that is the essence of the 'clamour' for 'AMNESTY' for MURDERERS, ARSONISTS, KIDNAPPERS, represented by Boko Haram. I hope the US Government will ENGAGE with the Boston Bomber, just as they persuaded Nigerian Government to 'negotiate' with terrorists!

The shame is to Nigeria's Security Outfit!

Any security outfit worth its onion (except a Boys Scout outfit) does not await directives from a President (like a 'bingo' waiting for orders from its master or owner). I hope the Nigerian security agencies are making notes or taking lessons! A President does not need to issue directives before officers will know how to do the job that they are paid for and have trained for, for DECADES!

After 3 YEARS, and despite being on the 4th IGP, Boko Haram is still a menace. Shambolic outfit! Even in UK, where officers do not usually carry arms, they are very efficient. Let us see if an AMNESTY COMMITTEE will be set up by President Obama to give them 'amnesty'.

BOSTON EXPLOSION AND RELIGIOUS DIVIDE IN NIGERIA

My folks, when great minds are thinking of revisiting the moon and exploring further, we spend quality of our time going to our villages and when we get there, we do not return to civilisation. Please! in your little way, you can add value to the Nigerian State. Consistently dwelling on mundane issue is not the solution. At least the US security operatives have killed and track down the perpetrator of the dastardly act. What have we done with our age long ethno-religious nonsense?

The Ayatollah also said that it is the duty of every able bodied muslim to wage a perpetual war on the 'infidels' until they accept to worship allah only. If they refuse to 'submit' then death remains the 'infidels' portion. In the end it turned out that the Americans were correct to have accused islamists as the culprits. There is no exaggeration. You are correct to say that "WE HAVE BEEN EXPECTING IT". Who else inhales and exhales terrorism?

TRUE TALK MY BROTHER!!!

BROTHER,U have given them,(the unbelievers)a very good explanation. Have u ever heard a muslim that bears tavavhs... or how do you pronounce it seff. American just want the world to hate islam in other to fulfill their mission that can never come to pass. Islam is still the fastest growing religion on earth, like it or live it adn thats why American rappers are massively converting to ISLAM like Busta Ryhmes,Loon,Akon etc are muslem today and are happy.

You are a fool!

Yes u are a fool u appear to be. We all know the americans (the knight templars also known as Illuminati) are trying all they could in their power to poising the image of our beautiful ISLAM. The writer of this comment should go and engage himself to something useful and not wasting his time cos ISLAM is a forever thing dat not even Americans can defeat.

@Kenneth: Does Islam

@Kenneth: Does Islam encourage, glorify or reward armless killing of civllians? At least check comments of a religious leader Ayatollah Khamnaei at www.abna.ir and it will give u an answer.
Think twice, if Islam encourages, glorify or reward killings, will the action takers be killing its belivers? Reflect over this.

THE SUSPECT IN CUSTODY!

I SAID EARLIER IT WILL BE A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THE REMAINING SUSPECT IS CAPTURED. JUST HAPPENED A FEW MINUTES AGO, REMOVED FROM THE BOAT HE WAS HIDING IN, LIKE THE COWARD THAT ALL TERRORISTS ARE. I HOPE HE STAYS ALIVE SO WE CAN GET SOME ANSWERS FROM HIS STUPID ARSE. BRAVO TO THE LAW ENFORCEMENT IN BOSTON. AN INSTRUCTIONAL LESSON FOR THE INCOMPETENT NIGERIAN LAW ENFORCEMENT ORGANIZATION.

Islam A Terrorist Organization & A Cancer To World!

Islam is a terrorist Organization and a Cancer to the World. The moment someone reads the Qu'ran he immediately turned insane. Qu'ran a satanic book has done damage to billions of people all over the world. The United Nations has to look into this book called the Qu'ran. This is no jokes! Islam is replacement of the COLD War. The Qu'ran must be banned from the public. This is a public safety concerns. The author was a Lunatic, armed bandit, murderer & child molester. The self proclaimed prophet muhammad made himself the last prophet of Doom. How can a killer called himself prophet? He says he was prophet of allah. allah is idol. allah is an unknown god. Prophet muhammad a Bipolar. He was seeing strange thing called the devil & he became worshiper of the devil called allah.

@'RE: CLAIM HE IS BELIEVER OF ISLAM' BY DAN'UMMA

A religion is culpable if it encourages, glorifies and rewards a pattern of behavior. This is the position with islam. It is reported that after the bomb blasts muslims in many parts of the world rejoiced. It was the same thing after 9/11. In Kenya, they held a solidarity rally at Mombasa sports stadium to thank their allah for the deaths of thousands. How do you shield the religion from the destructive tendencies of its adherents? Out of 142 terrorists groups in 2012, 91 were muslim, 15 were marxist and 10 were christian. Among them is the National Front of Tipura, India which has 800 members with 80% christian. How do the figures compare?The crusades were in response to 1/2 a millennium of islamic slavery. Islam gave the world the words 'terrorism' and 'assassin' thru Hussein Habbash, 11 AD ismailia shiite Kurd,known as the 'Old Man of the Mountain'. Even b4 then, terrorism had remained the main nature of muhammadanism.Nothing has changed.

@'RE-BOSTON BOMBER' BY HAMZA IBRAHIM BABA

Timothy McVeigh and Anders Breivik provide muhammadans their perfect examples of 'christian terrorists'. They forget that McVeigh was almost 20 yrs ago while Breivik is about 3 yrs now. Ever since 9/11, the jihadists have gone stratospheric by accumulating almost 25,000 acts of terror to date. In the city of Karachi, Pakistan alone, the islamists have rapped up about 2,000 deaths since the beginning of this year. Every muhammadan terrorist is fueled by the lure of islam and its promises both here and in the hereafter. Neither McVeigh nor Breivik claimed to have acted on behalf of Christianity. In the case of Breivik, he claimed, in his manifesto, that he has only prayed once in his life. He confessed to not being religious and even went as far as saying that he was influenced by islam. For those who have a craving for superficiality, would they accept that someone who confesses to not being religious and has only prayed once in his life be regarded as a muslim?

SR Humble pie your way

@SR

The day this crime happened, i posted on a report on SR betting my balls that the culprits definitely islamists were but SR didn't have better things to do than pull my comment down..Malo Aliyu..one of my fan boys is my witness because he like always replied , of course castigating me.

SR enjoy the pie! Guten Appetit!

@Tafidan DDaji

I am pre-empting you here cos i know it is a matter of time before you pop up here with your Aboki logic.

You will and must agree with me that you islamists have pretty much cornered the market on terrorism...no matter what the skin tone might be ..arab,black or caucasian.

I guess when you pick a religion popular with/practice by a certain group, you will be judged the same, yours is islam so all you islamists are terrorists. pure and simply

The US exposes her weakness to the world at home

The chaotic ways the US Police displayed in handing/solving the Boston bombing shows the country has a long way to catch up with new technology in solving serious crimes much quicker and effectively.

Britain covered her whole country with CCTV cameras, can nab criminals red handed committing serious crime, within few minutes or days without the chaos you have seen the US now display to the whole world. The US created this technology and cannot even afford to cover each of her 50 States let alone the whole country.

Were this in Britain, she would have simply through the CCTV cameras network traced the bombers to their hid out, wait for them to come out on the their own and catch them on the door step or flush them out if they take much time to come out, without such chaotic scene as you have seen the US Police displayed in the street where one of the suspects was even able to escape.

Here at home in Nigeria, we have nothing in new tech.

Action packed

When will the Nigerian security apparatus declare such war as we are witnessing in America against our own Boko Haram? granting amnesty to religious extremists will only offer them the opportunity to re strategize and come back with higher venom.

Christian or Muslim Terrorists?

Are they muslim or christian terrorists? When religion is mentioned I presume christian but if they are muslims, Muslim Terrorist will not be far fetched in everybody's mouth and pen....

America........I love the way

America........I love the way they linked the suspect to Islam.....................am not surprised really.......................we have been expecting this...................like Ayatollah said "he who controls the source of information controls the mind of the people."
