BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev had jihadi videos posted on his YouTube account, according to law enforcement officials.

That assertion appeared to be backed up by a page on YouTube belonging to Tamerlan Tsarnaev, which is the name of one of the suspects.

On the page, there was a playlist titled “terrorism.” The two videos under that list had been deleted by the author at some point.

The account also contained links to a number of videos about Islam, as well as videos of a Chechen singer.

CBS Boston has not confirmed that the account belongs to bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

The law enforcement official also told CBS that Tsarnaev was arrested on domestic violence charge in 2009.
