Merkel experiences bruising Swiss holiday
(01-06 19:37)

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has suffered a pelvis injury during a skiing holiday in Switzerland, putting her on the sidelines for the next three weeks.
Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert said the chancellor suffered what she first thought was just a bruise to her left rear pelvic area while cross-country skiing.
Doctors told her Friday that the injury was in fact an “incomplete'' bone fracture that will require her to rest for three weeks.—AP
