MAKHACHKALA, Russia - The father of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers said he was struggling to believe his sons were behind the twin blasts that killed three and injured more than 170.
"I'm planning to find the truth, justice," said Anzor Tsarnaev during an interview at his home in the southern Russian republic of Dagestan. "I want facts, proof that this is all original because otherwise, anything could be set up."
Tsarnaev's son Tamerlan, 26, died following a gunbattle with police four days after the bombings. His brother Dzhokhar, 19, was captured on Friday and has been charged with using weapons of mass destruction.
The case in the United States was clearly taking a toll on Tsarnaev's wife Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, who told NBC News' U.K. partner ITN News that she "wanted to die."
When asked why her sons were at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, she responded that they were athletes and liked watching the marathon.
The suspects' father described his sons as "wonderful children."
