WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will publicly testify before Congress next week about findings of an investigation into the deadly attack on a US mission in Libya, a US lawmaker said on Wednesday.

Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said Clinton would appear before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Dec.20 to discuss the conclusions of the State Department probe into the Benghazi attack.

Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American staff were killed in the Sept.11 assault on the US consulate by dozens of heavily armed militants.

The committee will hold an open hearing that “will hear testimony from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the State Department’s findings of the Accountability Review Board and how to prevent attacks from happening again at other frontline posts,” Ros-Lehtinen, the committee chair, said in a statement.
 
The much-anticipated hearing will start at 1:00pm on Dec.20 and will be closely followed after Republicans accused President Barack Obama’s administration of failing to provide proper security, and seeking to cover up the Al Qaeda links.
