Hillary Clinton 'being assessed by doctors'

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been sent to hospital with a blood clot stemming from a concussion she suffered earlier in the month, a State Department spokesman said. She will be assessed for the next 48 hours, according to spokesman Philippe Reines.

In the course of a follow-up exam today, Secretary Clinton's doctors discovered a blood clot had formed, stemming from the concussion she sustained several weeks ago.

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.
