Clinton home from hospital


US secretary of state Hillary Clinton is resting at home in New York after being treated for a blood clot and plans to return to her office next week, the US state department said yesterday.

Mrs Clinton (65) has suffered a series of ailments over the last month including a stomach virus, a concussion and a clot in a vein behind her ear. She was released from hospital on Wednesday after a stay of several days, during which she was given blood thinners for the clot.

Her doctors have said they expect her to make a full recovery. “She’s looking forward to getting back to the office,” state department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said. – (Reuters)
