Top lawmakers question continued aid to Egypt

Wochit

Two lawmakers who serve on the Senate Armed Services Committee ,Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire and Democrat Jack Reed of Rhode Island said that the United States should reconsider its aid to Egypt in the wake of bloody clashes between that country's interim government and supporters of ousted president Mohammed Morsi.

At least 36 people detained on suspicion of taking part in the street clashes roiling Egypt's capital were killed when security forces fired tear gas inside of the prison truck holding them

Lawmakers in Washington condemned the recent crackdown by government forces in Egypt but remained conflicted on whether to punish the military by trimming or cutting off aid, even as supporters of the ousted president, Mohamed Morsi, held more protests.
