DARTMOUTH, Mass. (AP) - The University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth has suspended one student charged in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings and says the other two aren't enrolled.
The university said Wednesday that Azamat Tazhayakov (AHZ'-maht tuh-ZAYE'-uh-kov) has been suspended "pending the outcome of the case." He and Dias Kadyrbayev (DYE'-us kad-uhr-BYE-ev) were charged with conspiring to obstruct justice.
Robel Phillipos was charged with making false statements. The university says Kadyrbayez and Phillipos aren't enrolled.
The FBI says the three removed a backpack containing hollowed-out fireworks from the dorm room of bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) three days after the bombings. Their attorneys say they had no idea the attack was being planned.
The FBI says the three began attending UMass Dartmouth with Tsarnaev in 2011.
The university says it's cooperating fully with authorities.
BOSTON (AP) - Three men who attended college with the Boston Marathon suspect have been charged in connection with the case.
Azamat Tazhayakov (AHZ'-maht tuh-ZAYE'-uh-kov) and Dias Kadyrbayev (DYE'-us kad-uhr-BYE-ev) are charged with conspiring to obstruct justice. A third man, Robel Phillipos, is charged with making false statements to federal investigators.
An FBI affidavit says the three men removed bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) backpack from his dorm room at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth three days after the bombing.
The affidavit says Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayev agreed to get rid of it after concluding from news reports that Tsarnaev was one of the bombers.
A court appearance for the three is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
