Bomber Made "Outbursts" At Mosque

(WHDH) Officials from a Cambridge mosque where accused Boston bomber attended services say Tamerlan Tsarnaev was asked to leave after outbursts during two services.

The outbursts occurred during sermons that encouraged Muslims to celebrate American holidays including the 4th of July, Thanksgiving and Martin Luther King day.

Witnesses say Tsarnaev called an elder a "hypocrite" for praising Martin Luther King, Jr. before being shouted down by others in attendance.

The mosque says there were no further incidents after that, even as he continued attending prayers and services.
