Serbian Patriarch Pavle hospitalized in Belgrade ( 15.04.2006 )

Patriarch Pavle, the head of the Serbian Orthodox Church, was hospitalized Wednesday, officials said.

The 91-year-old leader of more than 7 million Orthodox Serbs was taken to a top military hospital in Belgrade “because of the general condition of his health, related to his age,” the church said in a statement.

Patriarch Pavle also was hospitalized in December for a few weeks after injuring his hip when he fell in his office in Belgrade.
