FABRICE COFFRINI/AFP/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — Globe-trotting Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been grounded by a stomach virus.

Clinton, who recently got back from Europe, was scheduled to travel to Morocco, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates this week, but State Department spokesperson Philippe Reines said she’ll be “staying put” until she “shakes this bug.”

Reines said in her place, Deputy Secretary of State William Burns will head to Marrakech, Morocco, where Clinton was to attend a meeting on Syria.
