The Associated Press

Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili has a broken shoulder after a bicycle accident in Turkey.

A statement from the presidential administration says the accident occurred Sunday during what it describes as Saakashvili's daily bicycle ride. It said he was treated at a hospital in Istanbul but did not give further details.

Saakashvili was to have met Monday with Turkish President Abdullah Gul, but that meeting has been postponed until Tuesday.
