Khan Expected to Recover from Fall

Pakistani doctors say politician and former cricketer Imran Khan's injuries from his dramatic fall are not life-threatening.

Khan, head of the Pakistan Movement for Justice party, fell more than four meters Tuesday when he and several other people were on a lift device at a political rally in the eastern city of Lahore.

Doctors say they have advised Khan to stay in bed and rest for about a week.

A televised statement that Khan gave overnight from his hospital bed urged people to vote for his PTI party in the May 11 elections.

Saturday's vote will mark a democratic milestone in a country ruled for half its history by the military. It will be the first time a civilian government has served a full term and handed power to another through the ballot box.
