Russian authorities: Mother of accused Boston bombers taught son about Jihad

(PIX11)- The mother of the accused Boston bombers apparently had conversations about Jihad with one of her sons back in 2011.

The Russians recently turned over that information to the FBI but the conversation was described as vague.

Now the question is why it took so long for the Russians to share the information.

Congressman Peter King believes the gap is why Tamerlan Tsarnaev did not raise a red flag when the FBI interviewed him two years ago, “As more details emerge on “who knew what” about the Tsarnaev, ranking democrat on the house homeland security committee urges patience.”

“At this point, trying to point fingers saying the dots weren’t connected, is a little bit early. Let’s get in, let’s review it, and at some point, if there are some things we need to change, let’s change them. While authorities piece together the case this black ribbon is in solidarity with the Boston victims.”

Runners from around the world are showing support for the victims at this marathon in Madrid, where nearly a decade ago 200 people were killed by terrorist bombs.

Runners and spectators take a moment of silence to remember Boston before the race started.

In Oklahoma City, the site of America’s bloodiest terror attack before 9/11, some runners who were unable to finish the race in Boston laced up again to run the Oklahoma City Marathon.

“I’m wearing exactly what I wore in the Boston, except for a different number. Um, I just wanted to keep with what I started with, and I actually have my Boston bib on my back.
