Hillary hospitalized with blood clot

NEW YOR, (SANA): US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was hospitalized when doctors discovered a blood clot caused after she fainted and suffered concussion earlier this month, her top aide said.

The latest health scare for the globe-trotting Clinton will likely keep her out of the public eye a bit longer, just as she prepares to step down after four years as America’s top diplomat.

Clinton, 65, fell ill with a stomach bug on her return from a trip to Europe earlier this month that caused the former first lady to become severely dehydrated and faint, suffering a concussion.

“In the course of a follow-up exam, Secretary Clinton’s doctors discovered a blood clot had formed, stemming from the concussion she sustained several weeks ago,” her aide Philippe Reines said in a statement.

“She is being treated with anti-coagulants and is at New York Presbyterian Hospital so that they can monitor the medication over the next 48 hours,” he said.

“Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion. They will determine if any further action is required,” he added.

Reines did not elaborate further on her condition, and would not specify where the clot had formed. And the streets outside the hospital in Clinton’s home state were deserted late Sunday on a cold December night.
