Aung San Suu Kyi, the pro-democracy leader from Myanmar, vomited during a news conference in Berne, Switzerland Thursday. Suu Kyi was taking questions from media when she suddenly became ill. (SOUNDBITE) (English) NOBEL PEACE PRIZE WINNER AUNG SAN SUU KYI, SAYING: "I find the plane journey out to the West extremely exhausting and a little bit disorienting, because I couldn't adjust to the new time as quickly as I might have 24 years ago. It may of course have something to do with age, and maybe it has to do with lack of practice." Suu Kyi is on the first leg of a 17 day European tour. This is her first trip to the West after spending more than two decades under house arrest in Myanmar. Julie Noce, Reuters
