Kerry hospitalised in Geneva after French cycling accident
US Secretary of State John Kerry was hospitalised in Geneva on Sunday after a cycling accident across the border in France, the State Department said.
He was flown by helicopter to the Geneva University Hospital â€œwhere he is currently being evaluatedâ€ following the accident in Scionzier, France, near Chamonix in the French Alps, a statement said, adding that Kerry, 71, had â€œlikely suffered a leg injuryâ€.
The accident occurred at around 9:40 am (0740 GMT), the statement said.
â€œParamedics and a physician were on the scene with the secretaryâ€™s motorcade at the time of the accident,â€ it said, adding that Kerry â€œis stable andâ€¦ did not lose consciousness.â€
Kerry held talks Saturday in Geneva with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif in efforts to secure a nuclear deal ahead of a June 30 deadline.
The talks did not go into a second day as planned after Tehran rejected a key Western demand for site inspections.
