Boston: The lone surviving Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was injured in a deadly shootout with police here last week, was on Friday transferred from a hospital to a prison medical centre in Massachusetts.
The suspect has been transferred from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to Federal Medical Center Devens, a Federal Bureau of Prisons facility in north-central Massachusetts that holds detainees who need medical care, US Marshals Service spokesman Drew Wade was quoted as saying by CNN.

The facility is about 65 kilometers from the Boston-area hospital where Tsarnaev has been recuperating after he was found critically wounded in a boat in a massive police manhunt, days after the bombing which killed three and wounded 264.

The 19-year-old Chechen has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction and could face the death penalty if convicted.

His older brother, Tamarlan Tsarnaev 26, also accused of participating in the twin bombing, was killed in a shootout as the two tried to evade police in a stolen car last week.
