Reporter Dan Morse writes: “More than 50 reporters had gathered outside Ruslan Tsarni’s red-brick home on a cul-de-sac in Montgomery Village when the uncle [above] of the bombing suspects walked outside... Asked why his nephews could have set the explosions, he said: ‘Being losers. Hatred to those who were able to settle themselves. These are the only reasons I can imagine. Anything else to do with religion, with Islam, it’s a fraud.”
