BOSTON (AP) - A Boston hospital says the number of patients it is treating for injuries sustained in the marathon bombing continues to drop, two weeks after the attack that killed three and injured more than 260.

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center says that by Sunday morning, it had six patients with injuries from the bombing, down from more than 20 in the days immediately following the April 15 attack.

Hospital spokesman Jerry Berger says all six patients are in good or fair condition.

Beth Israel also treated 19-year-old bombing suspect Dzhohkar Tsarnaev (joh-KHAR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) for injuries authorities say he suffered during an attempt to elude police. Tsarnaev was moved Friday to a federal prison medical center.

In all, 26 hospitals have treated people with injuries from the bombing.
