In an interview with CNN in Makhachkala, Dagestan, Zubeidat Tsarnaev describes the bombing as a "show" that was staged and claims to have seen a video supporting her belief.
"That's what I want to know, because everybody's talking about it -- that this is a show, that's what I want to know. That's what I want to understand," she told CNN.
Zubeidat admits that she has not seen any news footage of the bombing but dismissed it, saying the blood in the street was paint. But then she broke down when talking about the victims. "I really feel sorry for all of them. Really feel sorry for all of them," she told CNN, her voice cracking.
She is wanted on felony, shop lifting and property damage charges in Massachusetts according to CNN and will not join her husband on the trip.
