(Newser) – Last week's phone call between Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his mother keeps yielding new nuggets. The latest is that Dzhokhar told her that someone opened a bank account for him, and people have sent him $1,000 so far, reports ABC News. A TV station in the UK aired audio of the full call in Russian, though there's no further details about the alleged donors. Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, who insists her sons are innocent, tells Channel 4 News that other donors have sent the family $8,000.

Asked by his mother during the call whether he was in pain, Dzhokhar replied: "No, of course not. I'm already eating and have been for a long time. They are giving me chicken and rice now. Everything is fine."
