CAIRO - Egypt said on Wednesday it will not be swayed by aid to change course in a probe of foreign-funded pro-democracy groups and NGOs, a case that has strained ties with the United States, a major aid donor to Cairo.

The government says the case is a judicial matter and that US-funded and other non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are being investigated for violating Egyptian laws, including failing to register and receiving foreign cash illegally.

"Egypt will apply the law ... in the case of NGOs and will not back down because of aid or other reasons," Prime Minister Kamal Ganzouri told a news conference.
