An intruder who broke into the home of Nancy Pelosi and her husband was searching for the US House Speaker.

The attacker was shouting: “Where is Nancy? Where is Nancy?” after breaking into the couple’s San Francisco home, NBC News reports.

Mr Pelosi, 82, was then attacked with a hammer.

He was taken to hospital, where he is “receiving excellent medical care and is expected to make a full recovery”, according to spokesman Drew Hammill.

Mrs Pelosi, the Democratic speaker of the US House of Representatives, and second-in-line to the presidency, was in Washington DC at the time, having recently returned from a security summit in Europe.
