WARSAW (Reuters) - Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo left hospital on Friday after suffering minor injuries in a car accident on Feb. 10, and told reporters gathered outside that she would attend next week's government meeting.

"Now it is time for a few days of rest and I will see you again at the Tuesday news conference after the government sitting," she said.

Szydlo's car hit a tree in southern Poland, the third crash involving a government motorcade since the eurosceptic Law and Justice (PiS) came to power just over a year ago.
