In the Boston bombing investigation, three college students have been arrested and will be charged with helping the Tsarnaev brothers cover their tracks after the attack.

The US Attorney’s office confirmed that three men arrested in connection with the attacks face charges of conspiring to obstruct justice and making false statements.

Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev, both 19 and originally from Kazakhstan, will be charged conspiring to obstruct justice and making false statements.

The third suspect, Robel Phillipos, 19, of Cambridge, faces charges of making false statements.

According to the criminal complaints, Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayev helped the Tsarnaev brothers after the bombings by throwing away possible evidence, including a laptop and a backpack full of fireworks that was in the UMass Dartmouth dorm room of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Here are the complaints against Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev (PDF).

UPDATE at 5/1/13 1:19:53 pm

Azamat and Dias, by the way, are the ones who were questioned earlier by police — the Daily Fail wrongly reported at the time that they had been arrested, and tried to make a big deal out of their “Terrorista #1” novelty license plate. (Which was based on a line in “Harlem Shake,” and wasn’t a sekrit confession.)
