WASHINGTON (CNN) - The United States will review its aid to Egypt based on protests and the government's response, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Friday.
"We will be reviewing our assistance posture based on events now and in the coming days," he told reporters.
In a carefully worded press conference, Gibbs said that President Barack Obama has not spoken with Mubarak. When asked why the president hadn't contacted the Egyptian leader, Gibbs said "We are again, we're monitoring a very fluid situation."
Gibbs urged restraint and called for everyone involved to refrain from using violence.
The White House is "deeply concerned about the images and the events we see in Egypt today," he said.
"The situation should be addressed through concrete reforms. That's what the people of Egypt demand. That's what they deserve," said Gibbs.
