US Releases $250 Million in Aid to Egypt

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry released $250 million in financial aid to Egypt on Sunday, with a pledge of more if President Mohamed Morsi implements economic and political reforms.

Kerry wrapped up a two-day visit to Cairo with a "candid and constructive" meeting with Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in which he called on the bitterly divided Egyptian political factions to unite.
