Three More Arrests in Boston Marathon Bombings

 BOSTON (AP) - Lawyers for two men charged with conspiring to obstruct justice in the Boston bombing case say their clients had no idea the attack was being planned.
 
     The lawyers for Azamat Tazhayakov (AHZ'-maht tuh-ZAYE'-uh-kov) and Dias Kadyrbayev (DYE'-us kad-uhr-BYE-ev) held a brief news conference Wednesday after their clients' initial court appearance.
 
     Attorneys Robert Stahl and Harlan Protass say their clients were just as shocked as everyone else and didn't have anything to do with the attack.
 
     They are accused of removing a backpack containing hollowed-out fireworks from suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) dorm room three days after the attack to keep him from getting into trouble.
 
     A third man, Robel Phillipos, is charged with making false statements to federal investigators. He awaits a court appearance.
