Anzor Tsarnaev, the father of the two suspects in the Boston bombings, called on his 19-year-old son, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, to give up peacefully.
He also said, in an ABC report, that “all hell will break loose” in the United States if police kill him. He did not specify further in the ABC report.
The father made the statements from his home in the Russian city of Makhachkala. He told the Associated Press in an earlier telephone call that ended angrily that his sons “were set up. I saw it on television. They killed my son.”
Mr. Tsarnaev told ABC that he had spoken with his sons on the telephone earlier this week.
“We talked about the bombing. I was worried about them,” he said, adding that his sons reassured him. “[They told me], ‘everything is good, Daddy. Everything is very good.’”
