    US President Barack Obama has interrupted his summer break to make a statement about the bloodshed in Egypt.

    From his holiday home on the Massachusetts island of Martha's Vineyard, Obama confirmed that the US would cancel joint military exercises. He did not mention whether Washington would stop the one billion euros it gives to the Egyptian military in aid every year.
