Britney Spears, stranded in Australia by a United States embargo on international flights, has canceled visits to Europe and South America.

"After much thought and deliberation it is with great regret that I have decided to cancel my planned European and Latin American promotion trips," Spears said in a statement issued by Brooke Harry, a spokeswoman from her record company, Jive.

Her announcement Saturday means she will not take her promotional tour to Cologne, Germany and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, this month, as planned.

Spears, 19, arrived in Australia on Wednesday on the last flight to leave the United States for Australia before the Tuesday terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

Passengers on her flight, including actor Keanu Reeves and Australian tennis champion Lleyton Hewitt, were told of the attack as they touched down in Sydney.
