WASHINGTON - US Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey on Wednesday warned the Egyptian military of consequences if its overthrow of President Mohamed Morsi is viewed as a coup.

"At the end of the day it's their country and they will find their way, but there will consequences if it is badly handled," he told CNN. "There's laws that bind us on how we deal with these kinds of situations."

Dempsey's remarks refer to the laws that require the United States to cut off aid when a democratically elected government is deposed by military coup or decree. The United States sends $1.5 billion every year to Egypt, most of it in military aid.
