Hillary Clinton to return to work next week after concussion


WASHINGTON (AP) - US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is expected to return to work next week, almost three weeks after being sidelined by a concussion.

Her spokesman Philippe Reines said she continues to recuperate at home and will resume her office schedule next week. He added that she had no schedule this week because of a long-planned holiday.

Aides and doctors said Mrs Clinton contracted a stomach virus in early December and became dehydrated, then fainted, fell and hit her head.

She was diagnosed with a concussion on Dec 13 and has not been seen in public since.
