Tsarnaev mom says sons are innocent

BOSTON (AP) - The mother of the two Boston bombing suspects says her sons are innocent and that she's no terrorist.

But the FBI says Russian officials intercepted phone calls in which Zubeidat Tsarnaeva vaguely discusses jihad with her elder and now-deceased son.

And she also talks to someone in southern Russia who's under FBI investigation in an unrelated case.
