  • MAKHACHKALA, Russia (AP) — U.S. investigators are in contact with the parents of the two Boston bombing suspects in southern Russia and working with Russian security officials to shed light on the deadly attack, a U.S. Embassy official said Wednesday.

    The Americans traveled Tuesday from Moscow to the predominantly Muslim province of Dagestan “because the investigation is ongoing, it’s not over,” said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. He said the U.S. team is working with the Russian security services, the FSB.

    “This is a horrible tragedy for our country, but one positive development might be closer cooperation on this set of issues with the Russian government,” the embassy official said.

    Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his 19-year-old brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, are accused of setting off the two bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15. The elder brother was later killed in a police standoff.
