WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House is warning Egypt's government
that if it is instigating any of the violence erupting on the
streets of Cairo, it must stop immediately.
Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs says the world is watching what is
happening in Egypt's capital, where thousands of supporters and
opponents of President Hosni Mubarak battled Wednesday.
Gibbs also says the Obama administration will consider the
Egyptian government's actions in reviewing decisions about $1.5
billion in U.S. aid to Egypt.
Mubarak announced Tuesday night that he would not seek office
again, but would stay in power until elections can be held in
Gibbs says an orderly transition must begin immediately, and
that transition must include opposition voices.
