One month after German Chancellor Angela Merkel suffered a series of shaking bouts while standing, she sat rather than stood, Wednesday, August 14, during military honors for visiting Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda.
The shaking episodes, all while standing at ceremonies, have unnerved many Germans, who look to Merkel as a rock in an unstable world. They have raised questions about her health and whether her schedule is too strenuous.
On July 12, Merkel sat for the first time during military honors for Denmark's prime minister. (Reuters)
