American Authorities Accused of Intimidating Associates of Chechen Man Killed By the FBI

Ibragim Todashev was shot by agents investigating the Boston Marathon bombing


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.
