    The mother of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects was added to a federal terrorism database about 18 months before the attack, government officials said Thursday.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the case. Being in the classified TIDE database does not automatically mean a person is suspected by the U.S. of...

    The mother of the Boston bombing suspects watches the video of her dead son's mutilated body and cries, her lawyer revealed on Tuesday, after it emerged that she is to be questioned by U.S. investigators.

Mrs Tsarnaeva is in Dagestan, a predominantly Muslim province in Russia's...
