Boston bombing suspects' aunt: This was 'staged'

  • Aunt: Boys' father had high expectations for them
  • Adds that she needs to see evidence to believe they’re guilty

The Boston bombing suspects' paternal aunt spoke to reporters from her Canadian home Friday, saying that she brought Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokar Tsarnaev to the United States in April 2002.  "Growing within the family, everything was perfect," she says. She adds her brother expected much from his two sons and she called him a "very loving, soft-hearted father."

When it came to the brothers’ innocence or guilt relating to the Boston bombings, she was more skeptical of what authorities are saying than their uncle had been. She says she is “suspicious” and believes the pictures that apparently show the suspects at the scene of the Boston Marathon bombing were "staged."
