Washington, May 31 (IBNS) US Secretary of State John Kerry was injured after suffering an accident while bicycling on Sunday close to the Scionzier in France, media reports said.

John Kirby, the State Department spokesman, tweeted: "@JohnKerry headed to Boston for treatment of broken leg. In good spirits, though disappointed, & grateful for local support/medical care."

According to reports, Kerry's trip to Europe has been cut short following the mishap.

"Mr. Kerry had been scheduled to fly to Madrid this afternoon for an official visit there. He was then set to travel to Paris for a meeting on Tuesday of foreign ministers from the coalition the United States has assembled to confront the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL. Those travel plans have been canceled, but Mr. Kerry plans to participate in the Paris event remotely by a videoconference," The New York Times reported.
