(NBC) Secretary of State John Kerry suffered a broken leg in a bike accident in France early Sunday, a U.S. embassy official told NBC News.
The cycling accident occurred near Scionzier, France, about 25 miles from Geneva, where Kerry had been holding nuclear talks with Iran’s foreign minister, Javad Zarif.
Kerry was flown by helicopter to a hospital in Geneva, where he is in a stable condition, State Department spokesman John Kirby said.
“Secretary Kerry is stable … He did not lose consciousness,” Kirby said.
Kirby said paramedics and a physician were in Kerry’s motorcade at the time of the accident. (read more)
