Topic: Tamerlan Tsarnaev
The ancestral home of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, has long been a land of fighters, but it took on the character of an Islamic jihad in the 1990s.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is now confirmed to be in custody, and is said to be in serious condition.
Residents of Boston and several surrounding communities were instructed to 'shelter in place' Friday during a sprawling manhunt for one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.
If true that the two suspects were raised in Chechnya, its warrior tradition - which stresses male independence and defiance of authority - would likely have shaped their childhood.
