Pakistan: Imran Khan suffers head injuries in election rally fall

08/05/13 01:15 CET

Pakistani cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan is recovering in hospital after falling off a makeshift lift in Lahore.

He was being raised onto a stage at a rally, just days before the country’s parliamentary elections. The PTI party leader suffered two minor skull fractures and a back injury.

But Khan was soon talking politics again, when he addressed voters from his hospital bed.

“I have fought for Pakistan all my life, I have done whatever I could do,” he said.

“Now I want you to take responsibility. If you want to change your fate then you have to take responsibility.”

Dozens of supporters have been praying for Khan’s recovery.

His party is not expected to win Saturday’s poll, but it could be a major partner in a coalition government.
