WASHINGTON (CNN) - White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters Friday that the U.S. is reviewing its aid to Egypt in the wake of the violent protests taking place in the country.
"We will be reviewing our assistance posture based on events now and in the coming days," Gibbs said.
In the carefully worded press conference, Gibbs also revealed that President Obama hadn't spoken with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
The president "has not made specific calls on this...We continue to monitor [the situation]," Gibbs said.
He added that the White House is "deeply concerned about the images and the events we see in Egypt today."
When asked why the president hadn't contacted the Egyptian leader, Gibbs said "We are - again, we're monitoring a very fluid situation."
