  1. U.S. Says Russia Failed to Share Information on Boston Bomb Suspect

    Moscow didn’t provide important details about the man later implicated in the Boston Marathon bombings, according to U.S. officials. Suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev likely would have come under increased scrutiny as early as two years before the bombings had the FBI been given the information, according to an inspector general’s report. Russia did reveal Tsarnaev was a follower of radical Islam but refused U.S. requests for more information. And it was not until after the attack that Russia revealed information from a phone call between Tsarnaev and his mom discussing Islamic jihad.
