U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is forced to cancel a trip to the Middle East. She has a stomach virus.
Clinton was scheduled to fly to Morocco for a meeting Wednesday with the Friends of Syria.
The group is focusing on ways to support Syria’s opposition against the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Deputy Secretary of State William Burns will go to the meeting in Clinton’s place.
It’s not known when Clinton will resume a public schedule.
