Exchange Student Says He Suspected Boston Bomber’s Role, A Kazakh exchange student awaiting trial on charges of obstructing the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombing testified on Tuesday that he told federal agents he suspected his friend had a role in the deadly attack.

The exchange student, Dias Kadyrbayev, took the stand for a second day in a pretrial hearing at which his attorneys are trying to persuade a judge to throw out early statements to law enforcement because he did not understand his rights.

Three people were killed and 264 injured in the April 15, 2013, blasts at the marathon.

The day after suspected bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had been captured, Kadyrbayev and a roommate were arrested on immigration charges and Kadyrbayev was presented with a copy of a statement he had made to FBI agents the day before during hours of interrogation, but objected to the report saying that he knew, rather than suspected, Tsarnaev’s role.

“You said you didn’t know for sure he was the bomber, that you suspected he was the bomber, correct?” Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie Siegmann asked Kadyrbayev, 20, during cross examination at U.S. District Court in Boston.

“Yes,” Kadyrbayev replied.
