Former teacher: 'They were normal people here'

Before Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev became the most wanted men in America, they were fixtures in this small village in Kyrgyzstan. The turn their lives have taken have many here shaking their heads. SOUNDBITE: Bodrudi Tsakaev, a good friend of the Tsarnaev family. Saying: "I'm shocked by this terrorist attack. I wouldn't ever expect such a thing - not even in my dreams." 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was captured by law enforcement overnight, was born in Kyrgystan and along with his brother Tamerlan lived in this house. SOUNDBITE: Lyubov Polosina, the Tsarnaev brother's former schoolteacher saying: "They all grew up right in front of my eyes. I saw them all. When summer would come... well, they were all decent, there's nothing else I can say, decent they were." Lyubov Polosina, a retired schoolteacher, taught both of the brothers at the local school and says they were good students, that they came from a family that valued education.
