The mother of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects said she and her husband intend to return to America from Russia to visit their surviving son, but fears she might not be able to board a plane to the U.S. anymore.

Zubeidat Tsarnaeva holds an American passport, but told ABC News she thinks she might be denied a seat on an aircraft because she now is the parent of suspected terrorists.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, is under armed guard in a Boston hospital after police found him hiding in a boat in the backyard of a Watertown, Mass., home. His 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan, was killed in a shootout with police.

Their parents, now living in Russia, maintain both sons’ innocence.

"I lost two sons," she told ABC in a telephone interview. "My family is in the dirt."

The FBI investigated Tamerlan in 2011 at the request of a foreign government, but didn’t find enough evidence to act. Their mother now claims her sons were framed in the bombing in an attempt to get rid of Tamerlan.

"They wanted to eliminate him as a threat because he was in love with Islam,” she said. “For the last five years they were following him."
