The surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect has told investigators that his brother orchestrated the attacks because he ‘wanted to defend Islam from attack’, it emerged today.
But in scrawled notes made from his hospital bed, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, told Guantanamo Bay interrogators that he and his brother were not linked to any Islamic terrorist groups.
According to CNN, Dzhokhar said his older brother, Tamerlan, 26, was the ringleader in the attacks that shook the nation a week ago, but that the pair were working alone.
In preliminary interviews with Dzhokhar, the terror suspect said his brother ‘wanted to defend Islam from attack’, a source told CNN.
Two U.S. officials said last night the evidence from the bedside interrogation suggests the terror suspects did not have any accomplices, despite previous fears they were part of a 12-man terror ‘sleeper cell.’”
