WASHINGTON (AP) -- The uncle of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev (TAM'-ehr-lun tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) says his nephew has been buried in Virginia.
Ruslan Tsarni said Friday that the body was buried in a cemetery in Doswell, Va., near Richmond, with the help of a "faith coalition."

The burial this week ended a frustrating search for a community willing to take the body, which had been kept at a funeral parlor in Worcester (WUH'-stur), Mass., as cemeteries refused to take the remains.
Tsarni says he's relieved by the resolution, saying, a "corpse must be in the soil."
Tsarnaev was killed April 19 in a getaway attempt after a gunbattle with police. His younger brother, Dzhokhar (joh-HAHR'), was captured later in the day and remains in custody.
