Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston bombings, had had a meeting with a representative of Akhmed Zakayev, a leader of Chechen separatists.
According to sources, the meeting took place in the USA's Manchester between Tsarnaev Sr. and Musa Khajimuradov. According to local police, FBI agents searched his home last week and studied the contents of the hard drives of Khajimuradov's computers. He himself was taken to a local office of the FBI for taking his fingerprints and DNA samples.
In Chechnya, Khajimuradov, known under the nickname "Spartacus", served as a personal bodyguard of one of the leaders of Chechen terrorists - Akhmed Zakayev, who is currently in exile in the UK. In Russia, Zakayev is accused of committing serious crimes, but British authorities refuse to extradite him.
