MAKHACHKALA, Russia — An aunt of the elder Boston bombing suspect says he struggled to find himself while trying to reconnect with his Chechen identity on a trip to Russia last year. Tamerlan Tsarnaev "seemed to be more American" than Chechen and "didn't fit into the Islamic world," his aunt Patimat Suleimanova told The Associated Press.
Tamerlan says he doesnt drink or smoke anymore: God said no alcohol. A muslim, he says: There are no values anymore, and worries that people cant control themselves. | What We Know About Boston Marathon Bomb Suspects Dzhokhar And Tamerlan Tsarnaev
