From the Daily Mail:

  • Russian intelligence services warned agency about Tamerlan Tsarnaev
  • Convinced he was in 'direct contact' with Islamist militants
  • May have been inspired by Chechen rebel leader man known as Russia's Bin Landen - Doku Umarov
  • Believed to be behind some of Russia's worst terrorist atrocities
  • But FBI later discounted Tamerlan as a threat, despite telling his mother he was an 'extremist leader'
