    The F.B.I. agent who fatally shot a Chechen man in Orlando during an interrogation in May about the Boston Marathon bombing suspects has been cleared of wrongdoing by a prosecutor in Florida and by an F.B.I. internal review, according to law enforcement officials.Another review, by the Justice Department, which is almost complete, is expected to conclude that the agent followed proper guidelines on the use of force when he killed the Chechen, Ibragim Todashev, according to the officials. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they did not want to jeopardize their access to classified information.None of the...

    Sometime in the evening of May 21 a contingent of law enforcement officials arrived at the apartment of 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev (pronounced Ibrahim To-DAH-shev).  The FBI says that the group consisted of an FBI agent, two Massachusetts state troopers, and “other law enforcement personnel.”  So there were at least four of them, and we may presume that they were all armed.  Their interest in Todashev was occasioned by the fact that he was an acquaintance of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the elder of the two Chechen-immigrant brothers accused in the Boston marathon bombing.  Todashev, like Tamerlan Tsarnaev, had been a mixed martial...

    On May 21st, an FBI agent and 2 other members of law enforcement questioned Orlando resident, Ibragim Todashev about the Boston bombing and an unsolved, 2011 triple murder committed in Waltham, Mass. Though initially cooperative, several hours into the session Todashev became violent and attacked the FBI agent. Forced to defend himself, the agent shot and killed Todashev. This was the simple, straightforward explanation of Todashevs death originally related by officials on the scenethe story of an agent defending himself against a sudden and unforeseen attack by a dangerous suspect. But in the days following the killing, the once simple...

    <p>Last week, a team of FBI agents and Massachusetts police officers questioned Ibragim Todashev, an associate of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings who was killed days after that calamity.</p> <p>One of the agents left the interview with minor injuries. Mr. Todashev was carted out with, apparently, several bullet holes in his body. We say apparently because journalists have gotten a tangle of conflicting reports from law enforcement sources about what happened, many of which look bad for the FBI.</p>

    Ibragim Todashev, a 27-year-old mixed martial arts fighter, was shot in his Florida home on May 22 in a violent confrontation with an FBI agent. The FBI agent and two Massachusetts state troopers questioned the Boston bombers' collaborator Todashev about his ties to the late Boston Marathon bombers, as well as a triple throat slashing/slaying in Massachusetts two years ago (that the Boston bombers have been implicated in). ABC News reported last week that Todashev became violent as he was about to sign a confession that he and the Boston jihad bombers were the murderers of the three Jewish boys...

    The father of Ibragim Todashev, who was shot by an FBI agent a week ago while being quizzed over his links to the Boston bombers, revealed the extent of his son's injuries in gruesome photographs of his dead body today. Outspoken Abdul-Baki Todashev called for an investigation and possible legal action against the agent involved at a press conference in Moscow where he showed the images of his son's body lying in a morgue with up to seven gunshot wounds, including one to the back of the head. His angry calls for justice came as a report claimed the 27-year-old...

    A Chechen man who was fatally shot by an FBI agent last week during an interview about one of the Boston bombing suspects was unarmed, law enforcement officials said Wednesday. An air of mystery has surrounded the FBI shooting of Ibragim Todashev, 27, since it occurred in Todashevs apartment early on the morning of May 22. The FBI said in a news release that day that Todashev, a former Boston resident who knew bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed during an interview with several law enforcement officers. The FBI has provided few other details, saying that the matter is being...

    What led an FBI agent, or some other law enforcement official, to shoot and kill an unarmed man in Orlando, Florida? The man, Ibragim Todashev, was being questioned about the Boston bombing, as well as an unsolved 2011 triple murder that he may or may not have confessed to committing. Does that sound sketchy? Don't blame me. Once he died, law enforcement started releasing anonymous, conflicting explanations so dubious that they warrant an inquiry all by themselves. Did the dead man have a knife? A gun? A sword? None of those? Let's run through a timeline of what we've been...

Khusen Taramov said he and Ibragim Todashev were being questioned as part of the bombings by the FBI official and law enforcement officers in Orlando. Taramov said Todashev, 27, knew bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev because both were MMA fighters, WCVB reports. Taramov said they were interviewed nearly three hours, and at some point, "something went wrong," and Todashev was killed. Sources...
