USA/Egypt. US to place conditions on fraction of aid to Egypt: US media (Joseph Stepansky, Al Jazeera)

The United States will withhold $130m in security assistance to Egypt this year, releasing the funds only if the government of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi ends the prosecution of rights and civil society organisations.

Washington also demanded the release of 16 American prisoners in return for the aid, US media reported on Monday.
