WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The slated U.S. delivery of four F-16 fighter jets to Egypt in the coming weeks was still "scheduled as planned," a senior U.S. official told Reuters on Wednesday, after the Pentagon said President Barack Obama ordered a review of U.S. aid to Egypt.

The U.S. official spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity.
