Ms. Clinton was expected to testify this month to US lawmakers about the September militant attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

In his remarks in Washington DC, Deputy Assistant Secretary Philippe Reines reported that while suffering from a stomach virus, Secretary Clinton became dehydrated and fainted, sustaining a concussion.

In September this year, the United States of America mourned the death of four American personnel in Benghazi who died in a rocket attack on the temporary consulate.

Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya was killed along with three others in the rocket attack. The death of the US personnel sparked international condemnation.

A 21 year veteran of the Foreign Service, Ambassador Stevens died from injuries he sustained in the attack on the Benghazi office.

As the conflict in Libya unfolded, Chris was one of the first Americans on the ground in Benghazi.

Mr. Stevens risked his own life to lend the Libyan people a helping hand to build the foundation for a new, free nation.

The US condemns this vicious and violent attack that took their lives, which they had committed to helping the Libyan people reach for a better future.

Libya had been engulfed by fighting since a pro-democracy movement opposed to the regime of Muammar al-Qadhafi emerged in February 2011 following similar protests in Tunisia, Egypt and other countries across North Africa and the Middle East.
