Amid the unrest that erupted after the military ousted Egypt's first democratically elected president, the Pentagon said that President Barack Obama has decided to halt the planned delivery of four F-16 fighter jets to Egypt. The move came two weeks after it was reported that the U.S. plans to go ahead with the delivery of the F-16s, and shows how the United States is struggling to respond to the removal of President Mohamed Mursi and an ensuing surge in violence.
