White House Cabinet-Level Meeting Set on Egypt Aid

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House will hold a Cabinet-level meeting to discuss cutting some of America's $1.5 billion in aid to Egypt.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest confirmed that a National Security Council principles meeting will take place Tuesday. Cabinet members such as Secretary of State John Kerry will participate.

Up to now, the administration has insisted that it has taken no final decision on halting aid to Egypt since the military's July overthrow of Mohammed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood-led government and an intensifying crackdown on Islamist opponents.

Both officials said Egypt aid would be the focus of the meeting. One official said a decision was likely on cutting some elements of U.S. economic and military support.
