Abdulbaki Todashev still waiting for an explanation of his son’s death

The family and supporters of an unarmed Chechen, shot in mysterious circumstances by FBI agents investigating his friendship with Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, have accused US authorities of mounting a campaign of “intimidation and harassment” against his associates.

The girlfriend of Ibragim Todashev was deported at the weekend after spending two weeks at an immigration detention center in Florida. She had already spent several months in jail for having an expired visa earlier this summer. Another friend of Todashev is also in jail.

Todashev, 27, was shot on 22 May after being questioned about his friendship with Tsarnaev, one of two brothers suspected of carrying out the Boston Marathon bombing on 15 April that killed three spectators and injured more than 260. Several inquiries into Todashev’s death are under way.
