The uncle of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev says his nephew has been buried in Virginia.

Ruslan Tsarni said Friday that the body was buried with the help of a "faith coalition." He would not say where in Virginia the remains had been entombed.

The burial this week ended a frustrating search for a community willing to take the body, which had been kept at a funeral parlor in Worcester (WUH'-stur), Mass., as cemeteries refused to take the remains.

Tsarnaev was killed April 19 in a getaway attempt after a gunbattle with police. His younger brother, Dzhokhar (joh-HAHR'), was captured later in the day and remains in custody.
