BOSTON (AP) -- The surviving Boston Marathon bombings suspect has been released from a civilian hospital and transferred to a federal medical detention center in central Massachusetts.

The U.S. Marshals Service said Friday that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev left Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center overnight and was taken to the Federal Medical Center Devens, about 40 miles west of Boston.

The facility, on the decommissioned Fort Devens U.S. Army base, 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 Massachusetts college student was charged with setting off the shrapnel-packed pressure-cooker bombs that killed three people and wounded more than 260 at the marathon finish line April 15.

Isn't it ironic that this boys own mother was placed on the 'active' terrorist list at the same time her other son that died was. And she had the guts to get on National news and claim we, the U.S. brainwashed her boys. SHE did this to them. It is a FACT mothers have the biggest influence over boys and fathers have the biggest influence over girls. She is the most HATEFUL woman, if there ever was one. Wonder what her GOD thinks about that?
