We’ve seen the photos of Marathon Terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in Times Square with friends. All faces were blurred out to protect their identity, with the exception of Dzhokhar. Now we find that two of those men are the same two taken into custody on April 20, 2013 in New Bedford, Massachusetts at a housing complex where it is believed Dzhokhar once lived or visited frequently. The two identified as Azamat Tazhayakov (20) and Dias Kadyrbayev (19) are reportedly from Kazakhstan and drove a car with the license tag “Terrorista No. 1.”
The two men were arrested on “immigration violations,” but police were lying on the tennis court behind the building with guns pointed at the apartment, while the arrests were under way. Details at New York Daily News More on the original arrest of Kdyrbayev and Tazhayakov here.
