The Tsarnaev family says that Tamerlan and Dzokhar are not religious extremists and are publishing pictures from their childhood to improve their PR.
As investigators are struggling to understand the motives behind the deadly Boston bombing, RT spoke to a relative of the suspected attackers who stressed that the elder of Tsarnaev brothers, Tamerlan, was not a religious fanatic.
“Tamerlan wasn’t a religious fanatic," she told RT’s Madina Kochenova.
“He was curious about religion. He started to be really interested in Islam about three years ago, but he was never a radical. We would talk about his commitment to religion, but it wasn’t extreme.”
