1535: Independent Moscow radio station Ekho Moskvy has a statement from Alvi Karimov, the leader of the Chechen Republic.
He told Interfax "the suspects in the Boston crimes have no relation to Chechnya". He says "according to preliminary information" the family moved "many years ago from Chechnya to another region of Russia".
"Then for a long time they lived in Kazakhstan, and from there moved to the US, where family members obtained residency," Mr Karimov said. "So the persons concerned did not live in Chechnya as adults, and if they became 'bad apples' then it's a question of who was educating them."

This is no reason to blame the "islamic world", such talk is out of place and out of order. We are all in this race to the bottom, all just as crazy. It has nothing to do with islam or freedom or whatever. It is about people behaving in a sick manner for whatever reasons they find justifying.
