DARTMOUTH, Mass. —

The University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth has suspended one student charged in connection with the Boston Marathon bombings and says the other two aren't enrolled.

The university said Wednesday that Azamat Tazhayakov (AHZ'-maht tuh-ZAYE'-uh-kov) has been suspended "pending the outcome of the case." He and Dias Kadyrbayev (DYE'-us kad-uhr-BYE-ev) were charged with conspiring to obstruct justice.

Robel Phillipos was charged with making false statements. The university says Kadyrbayez and Phillipos aren't enrolled.

The FBI says the three removed a backpack containing hollowed-out fireworks from the dorm room of bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) three days after the bombings. Their attorneys say they had no idea the attack was being planned.

The FBI says the three began attending UMass Dartmouth with Tsarnaev in 2011.

The university says it's cooperating fully with authorities.
