WASHINGTON (AP) — The top Republican on the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee says Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will testify this month on the deadly Sept. 11 assault in Libya.

Clinton will testify on Jan. 22, the day after President Barack Obama's inauguration and the first day the Senate returns to Washington after a two-week break. Sen. Bob Corker disclosed the date in an interview on MSNBC.

Clinton had been scheduled to testify last month but fell during an illness and suffered a concussion. She recently left the hospital after treatment for a blood clot in her head and returned to work on Monday.

Clinton had promised to appear before the Senate and House foreign affairs panels before stepping down soon. Obama has nominated Sen. John Kerry to replace her.
