• Group accuses FBI of harassing 2nd Todashev friend


    ORLANDO, Fla. - A civil rights group is accusing the FBI of harassing a second friend of a Chechen man shot to death in his Orlando apartment by an agent during questioning about a Boston Marathon bombing suspect. 

    The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations on Wednesday said a second friend of Ibragim Todashev had been taken into police custody.

    The civil rights group said Tatiana Gruzdeva was arrested Tuesday when she showed up at an immigration office to sign papers for an extension of her work visa.

    The civil rights group said Gruzdeva was told she was being deported for talking publicly to Boston magazine about Todashev.

    Todashev was killed last May in Orlando while FBI agents and others questioned him about his friendship with suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
