Egypt’s ex-president Mohammed Morsi dies in court

Egypt’s former president Mohammed Morsi, who was ousted by the army in 2013, has died after fainting in a courtroom, state TV says.

Morsi, a former top figure in the now-banned Islamist movement Muslim Brotherhood, was at a session over accusations of espionage charges.

He was 67.

He was overthrown following mass protests a year after he took office as the country’s first democratically elected leader.

He had remained in custody since then.

“The body has been transferred to a hospital and necessary procedures are under way,” Nile News TV said.
