(AP) A Republican senator wants more information about how a student from Kazakhstan (kah-zahk-STAHN') charged with helping cover up for one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects was allowed to come into the country without a valid visa.


Iowa Republican Sen. Charles Grassley says in a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano (neh-pahl-ih-TAN'-oh) that he wants to know what information Customs and Border Protection had about Azamat Tazhayakov (AHZ'-maht tuh-ZAYE'-uh-kov) when the student arrived in New York in January.


At the time Tazhayakov was not a student at the University of Massachusetts Darmouth and his student visa had been terminated. He was allowed into the U.S. anyway.


Tazhayakov and two other students were arrested Wednesday on federal charges of trying to cover up for bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv).
