Marathon bomber’s friend to be deported
Dias Kadyrbayev, a college friend of Boston Mara- thon bomber Dzhokhar Tsar- naev, has been released from prison and handed over to federal immigration officials, who plan to deport him to his native Kazakhstan.
Kadyrbayev was sentenced to six years in prison in 2015 for removing items from Tsarnaev’s dorm room at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, after recognizing Tsarnaev in photos released by the FBI days after the 2013 bombing.
Prosecutors have said there was no evidence he knew about the bombing in advance.
Three people were killed and more than 260 were injured in the bombing. Tsar- naev is on death row.
