Sun. 10:24pm: Hillary Clinton hospitalized with blood clot

WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was admitted to a New York hospital today after the discovery of a blood clot stemming from the concussion she sustained earlier this month.

Clinton's doctors discovered the clot today while performing a follow-up exam, her spokesman, Philippe Reines, said. He would not elaborate on the location of the clot but said Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants and would remain at New York-Presbyterian Hospital for at least the next 48 hours so doctors can monitor the medication.

"Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion," Reines said in a statement. "They will determine if any further action is required."

Clinton, 65, fell and suffered a concussion while at home alone in mid-December as she recovered from a stomach virus that left her severely dehydrated. The concussion was diagnosed Dec. 13 and Clinton was forced to cancel a trip to North Africa and the Middle East that had been planned for the next week.
