Hillary Clinton set to testify on Benghazi attack

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is due to testify to Congress over the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, last year.

Clinton will face questions from the foreign relations committees of the Senate and the House about security failures that led to the attack.

She had been due to testify late last year but fell ill.

The US envoy to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other officials were killed in the attack on September 11th.

The assault triggered a major political row over who knew what and when. As a result, an independent panel – the Accountability Review Board – was charged with investigating the incident.

Last month, an independent review blamed “systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels,” adding that security was “inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.”
