Anzort Tsarnaev, the father of the two men suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon Monday, says his boys were very good kids, and that they hated terrorists.  He is in disbelief that police think they are responsible for this attack.

Speaking exclusively with People.com from his home in Russia Friday, Tsarnaev is shocked by the accusations.  Like many, he watched the happenings play out on TV.  In a conversation filled with screaming and yelling, the man said of his now deceased 26-year old son Tamerlan Tsarnaev and 19-year old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev:

“They never could have done this. Never, ever, ever!”

“I feel terrible! Why they kill my son? Something wrong! My sons never do bombing,” he insisted. “They hated guns – how they do bombs?”

Tsarnaev says he spoke to his sons shortly after the bombings.  “We talked about the bombing. I was worried about them, they said they were okay.”

He added that his sons are  “Muslim, but not radical Muslim.”

The Tsarnaev brothers lived in the U.S. for several years.  The youngest Dzhokar, who is now the subject of a manhunt, was considered popular, and well-adjusted during his time as a student in Cambridge, according to reports.
