Egypt Breaking News: Islamist Backers of Egypt's Ousted President March

by Wochit 1:09 mins

Several thousand protesters demonstrated in cities across Egypt in the latest show of strength by supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi against the military, which deposed him more than two weeks ago. Leaders of the U.S. House of Representatives panel in charge of aid to Egypt proposed that military aid be kept at $1.3 billion next year, subject to conditions including the government planning and holding elections. U.S. law bars aid to countries where there has been a military coup. Lawmakers say that determination is up to the Obama administration, not Congress. The European Union's top foreign policy official urged Egypt's interim leaders and supporters of the ousted Islamist president to cooperate in a political process that moves the country toward democracy. But Mohammed Morsi's backers expanded their protests in Cairo, denouncing the new government and casting doubt on the prospects for reconciliation.
