U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived back in the United States on Monday aboard a special military flight from Europe after breaking his leg in a cycling accident. After landing at Boston's Logan airport at 8:50 p.m. EDT, Kerry headed to Massachusetts General Hospital in that city for further treatment, State Department spokesman John Kirby said in a statement. Kerry had been in Geneva for negotiations on Saturday with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and after the accident has had to cancel planned visits to Madrid and Paris.
