Hillary Clinton has been forced to cancel her scheduled trip to Morocco due to a stomach virus. The U.S. Secretary of State was scheduled to meet top leaders in Morocco to discuss the future of Syria's opposition this week. 

The State Department released a statement regarding Clinton's illness.  "Since she's still under the weather, we'll be staying put this week instead of heading to North Africa and the Middle East as originally planned."

The Deputy Secretary of State Bill Burns will instead travel in her place. "In her place, Deputy Secretary Burns will travel to Marrakech for the Friends of the Syrian People meeting. We will let you know when she shakes this bug and resumes a public schedule."

Clinton had planned to discuss the situation in Syria with foreign ministers from allied nations and move on to Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates. 

The U.S. Secretary of State has been busy as she traveled to Northern Ireland Dec. 7 for a scheduled talk with pro-British First Minister Peter Robinson and his deputy, former Irish Republican Army leader Martin McGuinness.

During the week leading up to her visit, three riots took place and other arrests were made after a bomb was discovered in a car before it could detonate.

Clinton denounced the violence in riots that continued even during her trip while calling for peace.

"There can be no place in Northern Ireland for any violence, any of the remnants of the past need to be quickly, unequivocally condemned," Clinton said at a news conference, according to Reuters. She said that the violence was only from "a small minority of people who try to stir up passions or emotions. It is unacceptable and must be repudiated by everyone".

The Belfast Telegraph reported Clinton's statement on the civil unrest:  "There will always be disagreement in democratic societies, but violence is never an acceptable response to those disagreements. All parties need to confront the remaining challenge of sectarian divisions, peacefully together."

She continued: "The only path forward is a peaceful democratic one. There can be no place in the new Northern Ireland for any violence. The remnants of the past need to be quickly, unequivocally condemned. Democracy requires dialogue, compromise and constant commitment by everyone to protect the rights of everyone."
