The Boston bomber alleged contacts keep piling up, but they are usually dead which doesn’t allow for much intel gathering.

The account in Novaya Gazeta said one of Tsarnaev’s contacts was Mahmoud Mansur Nidal, who was killed May 19 after a standoff with Russian authorities at an apartment house in Makhachkala. Nidal took several hostages, according to the news agency Interfax, and at one point threw a grenade at the authorities. The hostages were released, but Nidal refused to surrender and was shot dead, Interfax reported.   Agents Pore Over Suspect’s Trip to Russia.
