Local barber from Russia anxiously watched the manhunt in Boston

PHOENIX - Today it was business as usual at Central Barber Shop in Phoenix, but everyone's eye was being kept on the television screen.

Barber Roman Nektalov is a native of Uzbekistan, Russia.

Both Nektalov and his customers anxiously watched the manhunt in Boston develop.

For Nektalov, the news hits a little closer to home. Today he learned that the terrorist suspects were from a region in Russia near Chechnya.

Roman has always been very fond of Chechnya and their struggle to separate from Russia.

Despite the news, he does not believe that this will shed a bad light on his home country.
