The Boston bombing suspect captured alive Friday night suffered an injury to his throat and may not be able to talk, a federal official said this weekend.
Officials also believe that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his deceased brother were hoping to launch more violent attacks before they were caught last week.
This is likely, given the large quantity of explosives and ammunition they possessed, yet all evidence suggests the two brothers were acting alone.
“All of the information I have is they acted alone, these two individuals, the brothers,’’ Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino said on ABC’s This Week.’
“The older brother’s dead now. We have the second one ... in very serious condition,’’ he said. “We don’t know if we’ll ever be able to question the individual.”
