• Sen. Leahy blocking further US military aid to Egypt

    Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) plans to block US aid to the Egyptian military out of concern for human rights violations. Monday, a judge in Egypt sentenced 683 people to death in a mass sentencing. Among those sentenced were top opposition figures from the Muslim Brotherhood. Leahy does not want to send more aid until the government's "commitment to the rule of law" can be established. RT's Lindsay France has details on the controversy surrounding the billions in aid the US sends to the troubled country.

Army Humvee STORYLINE: The United States on Friday delivered 20 Humvees (High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles) to Lebanon, some of the 285 military vehicles promised to the Lebanese Armed Forces as part of a huge military aid package. The vehicles were the first instalment of US$39 (m)million worth of military assistance that Washington has promised Lebanon. The Humvees, which were transported to Beirut by a US C-17 aircraft, will help the Lebanese Armed Forces protect the Lebanese people and their territory as they continue their deployment into Southern Lebanon alongside UNIFIL (United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon) peacekeepers, the US Embassy in Beirut said in a press release. The Lebanese government sought military assistance in order to rebuild an army that will allow it to secure the country's southern borders with Israel and its eastern and northern borders with Syria. The United States was pleased to offer a helping hand according to Lieutenant Colonel Aaron Oglisbee, Chief of Office of Defence Cooperation, US Embassy in Beirut. "For the first time in years they (the Lebanese army) deployed in the South and all over Lebanon in a very complicated but critical and important mission. It is a different task, requires a lot of equipment, a lot of training which the LAF(Lebanese Army Forces) worked hard to acquire and the United States is pleased to assist them in that," said Lieutenant Colonel Oglisbee. Some 16-thousand Lebanese troops have been deployed to Southern Lebanon since August 14, 2006 after a cease-fire was declared following 34 days of fighting between Hezbollah fighters and Israeli troops which left nearly 160 Israelis and more than one thousand Lebanese dead. The Lebanese Armed Forces join a UN peacekeeping mission of 11-thousand troops already deployed to the region.
