(NBC News) Russian authorities have told U.S. investigators they recorded a 2011 telephone conversation between Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his mother in which the pair discussed jihad, according to a source briefed on the investigation.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev also mentioned the possibility of a trip to Palestine during the conversation with mom Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, the source said.
