Angela Merkel fractures pelvis in ski fall

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has fractured a bone in her pelvis in a cross-country skiing accident in Switzerland, her spokesman says.

She will have to remain lying down as much as possible in the next three weeks and several visits will be cancelled, Steffen Seibert said.

She also suffered severe bruising in the accident, in the Alpine Engadine region of eastern Switzerland.

Ms Merkel was not skiing fast at the time, the spokesman added.
