Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, suspect in Boston Marathon bombings, improving

BOSTON - Federal officials say the Boston Marathon bombing suspect's medical condition has improved.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-KHAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) had been listed in serious condition at a Boston hospital since he was captured Friday. On Tuesday, the U.S. attorney's office said his condition had been upgraded to fair.

The 19-year-old was wounded in a shootout with police and suffered gunshot wounds in the head, neck, legs and hand.

Tsarnaev was charged Monday in the twin bombings that killed three people and wounded more than 260. His older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was killed during the shootout.
