Boston bombing suspect's father calls him an angel
Anzor Tsarnaev says his 19-year-old son Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was studying medicine and was an "intelligent boy".
Watertown: The father of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects says his younger son Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is a "true angel". He said his son was studying medicine and was an "intelligent boy". "We expected him to come on holidays here," said Anzor Tsarnaev in a telephone interview with AP from the Russian city of Makhachkala.
Dzhokhar was registered as a student at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Students said he was on campus this week after the Boston Marathon bombing. The campus closed down on Friday along with colleges around the Boston area.
His older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died in a shootout early Friday. He was also a suspect in the Boston bombings. Tamerlan had studied accounting as a part-time student at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston for three semesters from 2006 to 2008, the school said.
The city of Cambridge announced two years ago that it had awarded a $2,500 scholarship to Dzhokhar. At the time, he was a senior at Cambridge Rindge & Latin School, a highly regarded public school whose alumni include Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and NBA Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing.
Tsarni, the suspects' uncle, said the brothers travelled to Watertown together from Russia. He called his nephews "losers" and said they had struggled to settle in the US and ended up "thereby just hating everyone".
