The remains of suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev have been buried in a Muslim cemetery in Doswell.
Tsarnaev's remains are interred at the Al-Barzakh Cemetery.
The burial was coordinated by a Virginia woman who saw news reports about the protest outside the Worcester funeral home, where it had languished for nearly a week, and decided to help.
She said today that she had reached out to the Islamic Society of Greater Richmond and asked if they could help facilitate the burial.
The society then secured a burial plot in the cemetery and coordinated the body's transfer Wednesday night. The burial was early Thursday morning.
