Three accused of obstructing bombing investigation

More than two weeks after the Boston ­Marathon bombings, authorities charged two ­Kazakh nationals and a Cambridge man with trying to destroy or cover up evidence linking their college friend to the deadly explosions.

Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev, 19-year-olds who have been jailed since April 20 on immigration charges, were accused in US District Court Wednesday with obstructing justice by dumping into the garbage a laptop computer and a backpack belonging to bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who attended the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth with them.
