The father of a Chechen immigrant to the US, who died while being interrogated by the FBI about ties to a Boston Marathon bombings suspect, has said that agents killed his son “execution style”.
At a news conference on Thursday in Moscow, Abdulbaki Todashev showed journalists 16 photographs he said were of his son, Ibragim, in a Florida morgue.
Todashev said his son, who was shot last week, had six gunshot wounds to his torso and one to the back of his head, and said the pictures were taken by his son’s friend, Khusen Taramov.
“My son didn’t have any weapons,” he said. “They questioned him for eight hours – eight hours! That’s an entire working day. You question a person for eight hours and you can provoke him to do anything.
“But my son didn’t have a gun, didn’t have a knife.
