FBI Disputes Meeting with Older Boston Bombing Suspect Following the Attack

Steve Neavling

The FBI is disputing claims that agents met with one of the Boston bombing suspects after the devices detonated last week, the Associated Press reports.

The mother of the suspects said the bureau met with Tamerlan Tsarnaev after the explosion – a claim that the FBI adamantly denies. 

FBI spokesman Michael Kortan said agents met with Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2011 but never again.

The bureau said it did not know the identities of the suspects until Friday, when Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed.

The brothers’ parents in Russia maintain their sons were set up by the feds.
