Washington - The chairperson of a House committee investigating the 2012 attacks on Americans in Benghazi, Libya, has called former secretary of state Hillary Clinton to testify next month, setting up a high-profile showdown over Clinton's use of a private e-mail account and server while she was in office. 

Republican Trey Gowdy of South Carolina says he wants Clinton to testify the week of May 18 and again before June 18.

The first hearing would focus on Clinton's use of private e-mails; the second on the September 2012 attacks that killed four Americans, including the US ambassador to Libya.

Gowdy's action comes a day after the Republican-led panel signalled its final report could slip to next year, just months before the presidential election.

Clinton is the leading Democratic candidate.
