The Boston police officially declared 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev wanted, thus confirming the identity of the suspect of the terrorist attack in Boston.
The police posted the official statement on Twitter. Police officials also advised residents of Boston and suburbs not to leave their homes and report any suspicious events to the police. The photo of the suspect was attached to the statement.
Earlier it was reported that security forces in Chechnya had no information about Tsarnaev brothers. The two men have never been wanted, nor do they have any criminal record.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's accounts in social networks have been found too. On his pages, among other materials, Dzhokhar was sometimes posting materials of extremist content.
CNN refers to conversations with the alleged father and uncle Johar. The young man's father believes that his son was "just an angel." It was also said that Dzhokhar studied in the U.S. to become a doctor.
The house in Boston, where the Tsarnaevs lived, has been cordoned off. The police has arrested two people, reportedly a man and a woman.
