US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice canceled a six-day trip to Indonesia and Australia on Friday, amid uncertainty over the condition of ailing Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Rice had planned to leave Saturday, but will remain in Washington "because of the situation in the Middle East," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said.
