ABC News spoke with the father of the two alleged Boston Marathon bombers on Friday, Anzor Tsarnaev , in the Russian city of Makhachkala. Tsarnaev’s sons, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, who survived a shootout with police overnight in which his brother and fellow alleged bomber, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was killed, told ABC that he spoke to his sons after they committed the attack. He implored them, via ABC News, to “give up.” However, the father warned that if his son is killed by U.S. authorities “all hell will break loose.”
“Give up. Give up. You have a bright future ahead of you. Come home to Russia,” the father of the two accused bombers said. He confessed that he had spoken to his sons after the attack and they discussed the bombing.
“If they killed him, then all hell would break loose,” Anzor Tsarnaev warned. “That may have just been emotion speaking,” opined the ABC News reporter who conducted the interview.
“If they kill my second child, I will know that it is an inside job, a hit job. The police are to blame,” the father told ABC News. “Someone, some organization is out to get them.”
