  • New pictures show Kerry on kayak as he celebrates July 4 holiday
  • Secretary of State’s aides retract denial that he had been sailing

John Kerry’s spokesman has admitted that the Secretary of State did go sailing off Nantucket as the Egyptian President was ousted from power, after pictures emerged of him out on the water on July 4.

The Secretary of State had been criticized for taking a vacation with his family at his holiday home in Nantucket, as Egypt plunged into crisis.

New pictures of Mr Kerry on a kayak and a boat in Nantucket Sound on July 4 have now surfaced after his spokesman forcefully denied he went sailing after an earlier photo was posted to Twitter.
