Jaweed Kaleem of The Huffington Post reports, “A mosque in Cambridge, Mass., confirmed Saturday that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the Chechen-born brothers suspected in the Boston marathon attacks, infrequently attended services at the small center.”  The Islamic Society of Boston wrote in a statement that, “In their [the suspects] visits, they never exhibited any violent sentiments or behavior. Otherwise they would have been immediately reported to the FBI.” The statement continued, “After we learned of their identities, we encouraged anyone who knew them in our congregation to immediate report to law enforcement, which has taken place.”
