Cairo airport reportedly told US NGO workers can leave
CAIRO - Egypt's airport authorities have been advised that a travel ban on American pro-democracy activists has been lifted, airport sources said on Thursday, opening the way for defusing a row that has threatened $1.3 billion of US military aid to Egypt.

A senior judge and other judicial sources said on Wednesday that Egypt had decided to lift the ban barring the departure of the US citizens who work for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that Egypt says have received foreign funds illegally.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday she had no confirmation that the ban was lifted but said she expected the NGO row to be resolved "in the very near future."
