"Egypt said on Wednesday it would not be swayed by threats to aid when probing NGOs over charges they received foreign cash without official approval, a case that has led Washington to warn that $1.3 billion a year of military aid may be at risk. A total of 43 foreign and local activists have been banned from leaving Egypt and their cases have been referred to a criminal court." (02/08/12)
