If the Boston bombers were affiliated with any terrorist group, it could be one that is relatively unique and one very few Americans know anything about– Shariat Jamaat. It is difficult to determine any specific terror affiliation connected with the Tsarnaeva brothers at this time. What is known about the two brothers can lead to pinpointing international connections, if such connections did in fact exist.
The Boston bombers were originally from Dagestan, Russia and followed the religion of Islam. While many reports claimed they were from Chechnya, we now know this to be untrue. Chechnya rests to the west-north west of Dagestan and the Terek River runs through both locations.
