An Italian news agency says that U.S. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi was hospitalized briefly in Rome with a minor ailment.

Pelosi, a former House speaker, had been scheduled to hold talks with Italian officials, including the defense minister, but the ANSA news agency said she was briefly hospitalized Monday at Rome's Policlinico and then released.

ANSA said she suffered a minor ailment but did not give any details.

The U.S. Embassy in Rome declined comment. Pelosi's office in Washington repeatedly refused requests Monday for information.
