Dear colleagues,

Could you give me a reference (not a proof:) to the following folklore result. If $X\subset\mathbb P^n$ is a smooth irreducible projective variety of dimension $>1$, then *any* hyperplane section of $X$ is connected. The base field is algebraically closed, characteristic is arbitrary.

Thank you in advance, Serge

thisis on Wiki:) Thanks, I will look up the paper. – Serge Lvovski May 18 '13 at 17:45
