Saudi Arabia has vowed to compensate Egypt for any aid withdrawn by Western countries in response to the military crackdown on Islamist protesters, in which almost 900 people have been killed, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.

Saudi Arabia, which fears the spread of Muslim Brotherhood ideology to the Gulf monarchies, alone pledged $5 billion out of a $12 billion Gulf aid package to Egypt after the deposed Islamist President Mohamed Morsi was ousted.

Reuters contributed to this report.
