WASHINGTON — US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Thursday expressed concern that India's ambassador to the US was patted down by a security agent at an airport in the state of Mississippi.

India's foreign minister called the pat-down of the Ambassador Meera Shankar unacceptable.

Clinton told reporters Thursday that the State Department is looking into the matter, which she said was under the jurisdiction of the Department of Homeland Security. She says her department is trying to determine what can be done to prevent such incidents in the future
