BOSTON - The ethnic Chechen teenager suspected of staging the Boston marathon bombings is in serious condition and being treated in hospital after his dramatic capture, police said on Friday night. 

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was found hiding in a boat in the backyard of a house in the Boston suburb of Watertown, wounded and weary after a gun battle with police overnight in which his accomplice brother was killed.

Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said that with Tsarnaev's arrest, "the citizens of the city of Boston and this area can be confident that the threat has been removed".
