Clinton contracts stomach bug after Europe trip

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has brought an unwanted souvenir back from her recent trip to Europe - a stomach bug.

Clinton has remained out of sight since the weekend after falling sick what her spokesperson's called a "pretty vicious" virus.

The Secretary of State arrived back in the US late on Friday, having visited both Dublin and Belfast earlier in the week, but has been out of action ever since.

Clinton is the most well traveled secretary of state ever - on track to racking up a million miles on the job.
