Washington: As US authorities prepared to question the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings to find out the motive for the terror attack they may face an unexpected problem, according to a media report.

Dzhokar Tsarnaev, 19, who was captured after a massive manhunt, "has suffered an injury to his throat and may not be able to talk," possibly hindering attempts by authorities to question him, CNN reported citing an unnamed official.

With the older brother Tamerlan, 26, killed in an encounter with the police early Friday morning, authorities believed answers to a motive and whether the brothers had help rested with the younger Tsarnaev.

The surviving suspect was in "serious but stable condition" and "not yet able to communicate yet," Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick told reporters Saturday.
