The mother of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects believes the whole incident was staged as her husband heads to the United States to claim the body of their oldest son Tamerlan.

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.

Anzor Tsarnaev, the suspects father,  says he wants to take the body of his son Tamerlan Tsarnaev back to Russia. Zubeidat says he will not be allowed to see Dzhokhar at his Boston hospital.

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.

Meanwhile, officials say 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has admitted to the FBI that he was involved in the attacks.

New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly tells WABC TV “I’m telling you what bit of information that we have that it may have been words to the effect of ‘coming to party in New York,’” Kelly said.

Kelly estimates the photo was taken in November, 2012.

 

 

Officials: One bombing suspect was in terror database

U.S. officials say the name of the dead suspect in the Boston marathon bombings was added to a U.S. government terrorism database about 18 months before the attacks.

The officials say Russia contacted the CIA in the fall of 2011 with concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

The Russians also contacted the FBI about Tsarnaev earlier that year. The FBI conducted an investigation and did not find he had any terror connections.
