They had been living in the US for about a decade at the time of the attack, but in 2012, Tamerlan Tsarnaev returned to Russia to visit. He spent six months in Chechnya and bordering Dagestan, another Muslim Russian republic which has struggled to shake off an Islamist insurgency.

The brothers’ parents, Anzor and Zubeidat Tsarnaev, have said they believe they are innocent and were framed by US security forces…
