US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton learned about the death of Muammar Gaddafi via an SMS message. Clinton was staying in Kabul when she learned the news. The moment, when she was given a cell phone, was filmed by CBS NEWS as Clinton was getting ready for an interview.

Clinton received her BlackBerry from an assistant. Having read the message about Gaddafi's capture, she exclaimed: "Wow!"

Clinton visited Tripoli this week to conduct negotiations with the leader of the National Transitional Council. The journalist, who interviewed Clinton in Kabul, asked whether the visit to Libya was connected with Gaddafi's death. Clinton responded negatively.

It is not the first time, when journalists videotape Clinton during intense moments. Her photo taken during the live broadcast of Osama bin Laden's death is still fresh in memory. The photo depicts Clinton covering her mouth with her hand, as if the Secretary of State was horrified. However, the politician later said that she probably covered her mouth with her hand because of the allergic cough which she had every spring.
