Accused Boston Bombers' Roots Trace Back to Chechnya
The two suspects who set off bombs during the Boston Marathon come from a small province in Russia. INSIDE EDITION takes a look at Chechnya, the home to Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
It's the war torn hell the Boston Marathon terrorists come from.
Chechnya is a tiny province tucked into the southern region of Russia. Islamic terrorists have waged a violent insurgency there for decades.
In 2004, Chechnyan Jihadists took 1,000 Russian school children hostage and slaughtered 380 people.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a grade schooler and Dzhokhar a baby when the family fled Chechnya. Eventually, they would seek asylum in the United States.
Now we can only wonder whether the violence they witnessed in Chechnya inspired their dispicable act in Boston.
A video of the bomb blast that shook the marathon shows that the bomb went off just a few feet from the national flag of Russia, arch enemy of the Chechnyan rebels.
