Chicago Tribune: Three friends of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon bombing suspect,  have been charged  with interfering with the investigation and search for him.

The three, two students from Kazakhstan and a U.S. citizen, were not charged with direct involvement in the April 15 marathon bombings, which killed three people and injured 264.

But three days after the blasts, the trio moved swiftly to cover up for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev when the FBI made public pictures of the suspected bombers, made a public plea for help locating them and conducted a day-long manhunt that left much of Boston on lockdown, according to court papers.

Authorities charged the two Kazakhs, Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev, both 19, with conspiring to obstruct justice by disposing of a backpack containing fireworks they found in Tsarnaev's dorm room. The third man, Robel Phillipos, also 19, was charged with making false statements to investigators.
