BERLIN — German Chancellor Angela Merkel fractured a pelvic bone during a cross-country skiing accident over the holidays and will have to cancel travel and rest at home for the next three weeks.

Merkel, 59, fell during her annual ski vacation to eastern Switzerland’s Engadine Valley, which includes the St. Moritz resort, and initially thought she had just suffered a bruise, said spokesman Steffen Seibert. Merkel consulted her doctor Friday after returning to the German capital and was told she had a pelvic fracture.
