US team speaking to suspects' parents in Russia


The parents of the two Boston bombing suspects plan to fly from southern Russia to the United States tomorrow as they talk with U.S. investigators.

   The father revealed the travel plans to the Russian state news agency. He had previously said he planned to talk with U.S. police and seek "justice and the truth."

   A U.S. team investigating last week's bombings is in the predominantly Muslim province of Dagestan (dah-guhs-TAHN'), with an official saying the Americans are working with Russian security services.

   The mother of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev went into the region's capital for questioning yesterday, according to a Chechen rights activist supporting the distraught woman. The questioning was believed to continue through the day today and into the evening.

   The activist says the father was also summoned by security officials but did not go because he felt ill.
