I don't plan to blow up anything. ... I am not angry at anyone. I want to go find out the truth." - Anzor Tsarnaev, father of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects. Tsarnaev announced today he plans to travel from Russia to the U.S. to bury his older son, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed in a shootout with police.
