The Obama administration announced Wednesday it's cutting off hundreds of millions of dollars of military aid to Egypt.
The move comes months after Egypt's first democratically-elected leader, President Mohamed Morsy, was forced from office.
According to senior White House officials, the move means an immediate halt to a 260-million dollar cash transfer and the suspension of large-scale military systems like apache helicopters, F-16 aircraft, M1A1 tank parts and harpoon anti-ship missiles.
Officials say some of the aid will be "repurposed" to benefit the Egyptian people.
Humanitarian aid to the country will continue.
