Friends of Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Plead Not Guilty To Hindering Investigation

Two Kazakhstan nationals, both friends of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev,  Robel Phillipos and Dias Kadyrbayev pleaded not guilty to charges of hindering the investigation into the bombing.

The arraignment of a third friend, Azamat Tazhayakov (AZ’-maht tuh-ZAY’-uh-kahv), was scheduled for later Friday after his lawyer was delayed.

Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov stand accused of “destroying or concealing some of Tsarnaev’s belongings,” while he was trying to evade authorities.
