WASHINGTON -- US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has chosen a retired senior diplomat and former ambassador to Turkey as the Obama administration's new special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Fifty-nine-year-old Marc Grossman, whose appointment is due to be formally announced by Clinton later today, is a vice president at the Washington-based international consulting firm the Cohen Group, which he joined after ending a nearly 30-year diplomatic career in 2005 as undersecretary of state for political affairs. 

Grossman will fill the vacancy created by the sudden death in December of Richard Holbrooke, for whom the White House created the position of special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan in January 2009.
