Imran Khan Leaves Hospital

Imran Khan, cricketer-turned-politician and head of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is surrounded with supporters as he leaves to lead a peace march against U.S. drone strikes from Islamabad to South Waziristan, October 6, 2012.
Pakistani politician and former cricketer Imran Khan has left the hospital two weeks after he sustained injuries in a dramatic fall in Lahore.

Hospital officials say the 60-year-old Khan left the hospital Wednesday and will be staying at his home in Lahore.

Khan fractured several vertebrae and a rib when he fell more than four meters off a forklift at a campaign event on May 7.

The accident largely knocked Khan out of the final campaigning days ahead of national elections, held May 11. He later delivered video messages from the hospital to his supporters.
