The father of the Boston bombing suspect, who police are currently searching for, said his son is an accomplished medical student and "a true angel", according to the Associated Press.
My son is a true angel. Dzhokhar is a second-year medical student in the US. He is such an intelligent boy. We expected him to come on holidays here.
Among those terribly injured by the Boston marathon bombs was a dance instructor. Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost her foot in the explosion.
The mother of the two brothers suspected of carrying out the Boston bombings told ITV News they saw last year's race but are innocent.
Boston's marathon bombing suspect Dzohkhar Tsarnaev was charged with an offence that could lead to the death penalty, if he is found guilty.
