Washington: The uncle of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect currently in FBI custody has expressed outraged over his nephew’s actions and has urged him to ask for forgiveness from the victims of the blast.
Ruslan Tsarni said that he last saw Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarneav in 2005 and said he was ashamed of their actions.

In a message to Dzhokhar, he said that ‘if you’re alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness from the victims, from the injured.’
