WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Seven of former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email chains will be withheld from public release because they have been found to contain top secret information, the U.S. State Department said on Friday.

"The State Department will be denying in full seven email chains, found in 22 documents representing 37 pages," said State Department spokesman John Kirby. "The documents are being upgraded at the request of the Intelligence Community because they contain a category of Top Secret information ... These documents were not marked classified at the time they were sent."
