Hearing on accused Boston bomber’s friends focuses on FBI agents

BOSTON (Reuters) – Attorneys for one of the accused Boston Marathon bomber’s three friends charged with hampering the investigation will question an FBI agent on Wednesday as they try to prevent early statements by their client from being read at his upcoming trial.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s college friends, Kazakh exchange students Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov, and Robel Phillipos of Cambridge, will appear at hearings in federal court in Boston this week ahead of the trials, which are due to begin in June.
