WASHINGTON: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will soon testify before US lawmakers at an open-door hearing about the deadly September attack on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya, a top lawmaker said Friday.
Clinton will appear before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs "to discuss, in an open hearing, the findings and recommendations" in a State Department report on the attack, committee chairwoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said.
Ros-Lehtinen's office said the report from the Accountability Review Board was due to be released next week, and that Clinton would testify "soon thereafter." No specific date was given for Clinton's testimony. It was however unlikely that she would testify next week, as she is due to leave Monday on a trip to north Africa and Abu Dhabi.
