    Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the 26-year-old Boston bombing suspect killed in a shootout with police, followed "radical Islam," according to fellow acquaintances from his mosque. Two worshipers who showed up for Saturday’s prayer service at the Cambridge mosque recalled seeing both Tsarnaev brothers at worship. Tamerlan, they said, was thrown out of the building about three months ago, after he stood up and shouted at the imam during a Friday prayer service.

Tamerlan's younger brother, also a suspect, is in a Boston hospital in serious condition.
