White House officials are meeting on Tuesday to discuss cutting aid to Egypt.

There are concerns about violence in the country as security forces crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators who are protesting against the overthrow of Mohammed Morsi's government.

Mohamed El-Erian, the CEO of investment management company PIMCO, says that the situation is exacerbating existing problems with the country's economy.
