Clinton, 65, was "suffering from a stomach virus," according to State Department spokesman Philippe Reines, when she "became dehydrated and fainted, sustaining a concussion."

“She has been recovering at home and will continue to be monitored regularly by her doctors. At their recommendation, she will continue to work from home next week, staying in regular contact with department and other officials. She is looking forward to being back in the office soon," Reines said.

A planned trip to the Middle East and North Africa was already canceled because of Clinton's stomach flu.
