BRUSSELS (AP) -- Diplomats from the European Union are gathering Monday morning in Brussels to discuss possible actions in response to the crisis in Egypt.
The EU is warning Egyptian authorities that the people's calls for democracy and fundamental rights "cannot be disregarded, much less be washed away in blood." Officials say nearly 900 people have died there since Wednesday.
UPDATE: Congress split on cutting off aid to Egypt
In the U.S., members of Congress are split over whether the U.S. should cut off military aid to Egypt amid the spiraling violence there.
Democrats are generally supportive of President Barack Obama's approach. Some Republicans, including Sen. John McCain, are calling for the elimination of military aid.
While other Republicans, such as Congressman Peter King, are more hesitant.
