The chairman of the Senate Committee on Armed Services said Wednesday that the Egyptian military’s ouster of Islamist President Mohammad Morsi is a “coup” that should trigger suspension of aid to Egypt.

“I believe it is a coup, and I believe the aid should be suspended,” Sen. Carl M. Levin said at the Carnegie Endowment in Washington, noting that U.S. law states that aid must be halted if a democratically elected president is deposed in a coup or by military decree.
