Owners of 'Terrorista #1' BMW license plate revealed as the SAME friends pictured with the Boston bomber in Times Square
Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev are from Kazakhstan
Friends of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev arrested last week who cruised around in a car with the ‘Terrorista #1’ license plate have also been revealed to be two of the group of friends recently photographed with the Boston Marathon bomber in Times Square.
- They were classmates of bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
- Dzhokhar may have slept at their house on the night of the bombing
- They've been in custody since last Saturday and a lawyer says they are 'shocked' by the allegations against their friend
The two 19-year-old men from Kazakhstan are Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev. They were classmates of bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.
Authorities say they were detained for immigration violations on April 20 after being questioned in connection with the attack, which occurred a few days earlier.
Kadyrbayev's lawyer, Robert Stahl, says the students are shocked by the allegations against Tsarnaev and just want to go home.
