Boston Marathon blast injuries toll at 264

Related

More than 260 people have been treated for injuries suffered in last week's Boston bombings.

Boston's public health commission says 264 people have now been treated, with the number rising as people who suffered minor injuries seek help.

A total 51 people are still receiving treatment in hospital.

The blasts were allegedly carried out by two ethnic Chechens living legally in the U-S, and killed three people - including an eight-year-old boy.

The surviving suspect, 19-year-old Dzorkhar Tsarnaev, remains in hospital with gunshot wounds.

He's charged with using a weapon of mass destruction and could face the death penalty if convicted.

His 26-year-old brother Tamerlan was killed in a shoot-out with police.
