Probe Sought in FBI Killing of Boston Bombing Suspect’s Friend

WASHINGTON, May 30 (RIA Novosti) – A US Islamic rights group said Thursday it is calling for an official investigation of the FBI shooting death in Florida of a 27-year-old man who was being questioned about his ties to a suspect in the Boston Marathon bomb attack, amid reports the victim was unarmed.

“The bottom line is you have an unarmed individual who was not convicted or even charged with a crime who was interrogated and then was shot and killed,” Hassan Shibly, director of the Tampa branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), told RIA Novosti.

“Were his rights violated during the interrogation-questioning process? Was excessive force used against him? We’re not accusing anyone of anything at this point. We just have a lot of unanswered questions,” Shibly said in a telephone interview.

He said CAIR expected to file its formal complaint with the US Department of Justice by Friday calling for an investigation of the circumstances surrounding the death of Ibragim Todashev, who was shot by an agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in Orlando on May 22.
