The Associated Press

 

MOSCOW — Kazakhstan's Foreign Ministry says it is cooperating with the United States in the case of two of its citizens arrested in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing.

Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov were university friends of bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. They were charged Wednesday with attempting to destroy evidence by disposing of a backpack and laptop computer taken from his room after they found he was a suspect in the fatal bombing.

On Thursday, the Kazakh foreign ministry issued a statement saying "Both Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov are cooperating with the investigative bodies and providing them assistance."

"As we have repeatedly stressed, Kazakhstan strongly condemns any form of terrorism. The Kazakhstan side is cooperating with the U.S. law enforcement bodies in their investigation," the ministry said.
