Abort an HTTP request before the request timed out

I'm working in a small application, which tries to access data on a web
Normally the request has a timeout of for example 60 seconds
conn = httplib.HTTPConnection(server_name, server_port, timeout=60)
resp = conn.getresponse()
except HaveToLookUpNameOfTimeOutException as exc:
print "timed out"
Sometimes I would like to abort the request from another thread and
force an immediate retry.
How would I do this best?
The other thread would be either a UI button or some other code knowing,
when it is not good to wait the ull minute.
Normally the timeout of 1 mintues is what I need though.
Thanks for any suggestion.
The solution should work on Windows and Linux
