Angela Merkel injures pelvis in skiing accident --- The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, has fractured her pelvis during a skiing holiday in Switzerland, forcing her to cancel several meetings and trips scheduled over the next three weeks. -- Merkel's spokesman, Steffen Seibert, said on Monday the chancellor had fallen while cross-country skiing in Engadin near St Moritz in the Swiss Alps, suffering severe bruising and a "partial fracture of the left interior pelvic ring". -- Merkel at first thought she had just suffered bruising, and only realised the extent of her injuries after seeing a doctor upon her return to Berlin. A full recovery will require lots of resting and may take up to six weeks, medical experts said. - More, Guardian at:
