MAKHACHKALA, Russia (AP) - The father of the two Boston bombing suspects says he is leaving Russia soon for the United States.
Anzor Tsarnaev told journalists in the southern Russian province of Dagestan on Thursday that he is leaving "today or tomorrow."
The suspects' mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, said she was still thinking it over. She was charged with shoplifting in the U.S. last summer and is concerned that she could be arrested.
Tsarnaeva said she had been assured by lawyers, however, that she would not be.
The Tsarnaev family emigrated to the U.S. a decade ago, but both parents returned to Russia last year.
