US Secretary of State John Kerry has made the highest-level American visit to Egypt since President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi took office in an attempt by Washington to press the country for more moderate policies.
Kerry said the US government has proposed providing an aid package worth $650 million (£380m) to Egypt and is working with Congress to settle differences over the final amount
Earlier this month, the US quietly agreed to send an estimated $572 million US dollars to Egypt in military and security assistance - widely believed to include Apache attack helicopters- on top of $200 million US dollars in economic aid already delivered.
