    During a press conference in Dagestan, the Tsarnaev parents continued to insist that their sons have been wrongly accused in the Boston Marathon bombing—claiming that neither Tamerlan nor Dzhokhar was involved with radical Islam. Despite the evidence presented against her sons, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva adamantly stated that she will not accept the notion that they are guilty. "No, I don't—and won't. Never!" she said through tears. The boys' mother claims she is considering renouncing her U.S. citizenship. "I thought America was going to ... protect us, our kids. It was going to be safe," she said. "But it happened the opposite. My kids—America took my kids away from me—only America."
