The Senate Intelligence Committee will examine the FBI's handling of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, chairwoman Sen. Dianne Feinstein told CNN on Monday.

A hearing with FBI officials, expected to take place behind closed doors, could happen as soon as Tuesday, said Feinstein, D-California.

Tsarnaev was questioned by the FBI at the request of Russia before he traveled there last year. Some members of Congress have asked why he wasn't further questioned or monitored by the FBI when he returned to the United States six months later.

He died after a shootout with police on Thursday night. His younger brother and alleged bombing accomplice, Dzhokhar, was captured the next day.
