The Boston Globe reports that the three new suspects are college students and were connected to 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the younger and surviving of the two alleged Boston Marathon bombers, through the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was a student.
So far, only the names of the two brothers, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, are known, the latter having been killed during a shootout with police a few nights after the Boston Marathon bombing. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev escaped, prompting Boston authorities to shut down the city and carry out an extensive manhunt for the alleged bomber.
