Civil Rights Group Accuses FBI of Threatening Friend of Man Killed During Boston Marathon Questioning

A civil rights group has accused the FBI of threatening to deport the friend of a Chechen man shot to death in his Orlando apartment by an agent during questioning about a Boston Marathon bombing suspect.

The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations on Wednesday said Tatiana Gruzdeva, a friend of Ibragim Todashev, was arrested Tuesday when she showed up at an immigration office to sign papers for an extension of her work visa.

    Officials originally said the Chechen man lunged at an agent with a knife. They later said it was no longer clear what happened.

    The agent suffered a visual hallucination and thought that he's facing a dog.
