Egypt-US rift remains as NGO workers depart

Seven US citizens released on bail in Cairo, but the diplomatic crisis might not be over.

    Seven US citizens, among 43 workers from non-governmental organisations charged with operating without a license and receiving illegal foreign funds, have departed for home.
