Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been transferred from Boston's Beth Israel Medical Center, where he'd been since his arrest a week ago.
He has been moved to a federal medical prison at Fort Devens, Mass., the U.S. Marshals Service said Friday.
The facility, about 40 miles west of Boston, is on the decommissioned Fort Devens U.S. Army base, and treats federal prisoners and detainees who require specialized long-term medical or mental health care.
The 19-year-old Tsarnaev is recovering from a gunshot wound to the throat and other injuries suffered during his attempted getaway.
The development comes a day after New York officials said Tsarnaev and his older brother and fellow suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev planned to attack Times Square.
