BELGRADE, Serbia-Montenegro -- Patriarch Pavle, the head of the Serbian
Orthodox Church, was hospitalized Friday, 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.
