UK reviews overseas aid budget

In a major shake-up of its 6.5 billion pound aid budget, the British government on Tuesday is due to announce cuts in funding to some international aid organizations, and will tell others that they risk losing funding if they do not improve their performance.

The decisions to be announced by International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell follow a nine-month review by Britain's Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition government of its overseas aid budget, one of the world's biggest.
