The parents of the suspected Boston bombers  have claimed that their oldest son received a call from the FBI accusing him of  the attack, to which he responded: ‘That’s your problem.’

Tamerlan Tsarnaeva,  who was killed following a shoot out with the police on Friday, called his  mother two or three days after the marathon bombings to tell her about the call  from the FBI, his father said.

The claims, reported by Channel 4  News, reveal how Tsarnaeva,  26, believed that the FBI was watching him. His mother previously said he had  been followed by the FBI for five years.

Channel 4 News suggested that, while it was  unlikely the FBI had called the suspect to accuse him of the heinous crime, it  was perhaps his way of preparing his parents for the news of his  involvement.

While it seems unlikely, if the claim is  true, it raises questions over how the FBI handled the case.

The agency has already come under fire for  reportedly failing to stop the brothers before they planted two bombs at the  finish line of the marathon, killing three and injuring more than  180.

It has emerged that Russian authorities  alerted the FBI about their concerns over Tsarnaeva’s links after he was spotted speaking to an  Islamic militant six times at a mosque in Dagestan last year.

Now his parents are planning to visit the  U.S. to see their surviving son, 19-year-old Dzhokhar  Tsarnaev, who was found hiding in a boat following his older brother’s  death.

Zubeidat Tsarnaeva told ABC World  News in a tearful phone interview  that she fears her son will receive the death penalty.

‘I lost two sons,’ she said through tears  over the phone. ‘My family is in the dirt.’

The grieving mother did not say when she and  her husband, Anzor Tsarnaev, plan to travel to the U.S.

She told an ABC reporter based in southern  Russia that she fears she will  be unable to do so, despite her having an  American passport, because she is now the parent of a suspected  terrorist.

The couple spent the day hiding from the  crowd of journalist that flooded their neighborhood in the remote Russian region  of Dagestan, according to ABC News.

Neighbors who did speak to the press said the  Tsarneav family had no noticeable ties to Islamic fundamentalism or terrorist  factions.

One neighbor said that there was no  fanaticism among the family members living there and that the father was not too  religious.

In her phone call with ABC News reporter  Kirit Radia, Tsarnaeva reiterated the wild claims her husband has made  in  previous interviews that their two sons were framed by the U.S.  government.

She said her oldest son Tamerlan, 26, was  investigated two years ago by the FBI only because ‘he loved Islam’ and that he  ‘didn’t do anything bad.’

The FBI said in a statement released Friday  that it had investigated Tamerlan Tsarnaeva in 2011 at the request of a foreign  government. The FBI did not reveal which country’s government that was.

‘The request stated that it was based on  information that he was a follower of radical Islam and a strong believer, and  that he had changed drastically since 2010 as he prepared to leave the United  States for travel to the country’s region to join unspecified underground  groups,’ the FBI statement said.

The FBI said that in response to the request  the bureau culled through its databases and interviewed both Tamerlan Tsarnaeva  and members of his family, but were unable to find any evidence that he was  connected to a terrorist organization.

‘The FBI did not find any terrorism activity,  domestic or foreign, and those results were provided to the foreign government  in the summer of 2011. The FBI requested but did not receive more specific or  additional information from the foreign government,’ the bureau’s statement  read.

‘They were all afraid of Tamerlan’ his mother  told ABC News referring to the U.S. government.

‘They wanted to eliminate him as a threat  because he was in love with Islam. For the last five years they were following  him.’

Tsarnaeva said the anxiety of losing both her  sons has caused her to feel so sick she needs to call for an ambulance every two  and a half hours.

‘I don’t know how to live like this,’ she  said.
