Egypt’s former president Mohammed Morsi, who was ousted by the army in 2013, has died in court, state TV says.
He reportedly fainted after a court session where he was facing espionage charges and subsequently died. He was 67.
State TV on Tuesday reported that Morsi fainted after a court session and died afterwards.
Morsi was democratically elected in 2012 after the 2011 Arab Spring saw the end of President Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year rule. He was then deposed following mass protests and a military coup in July 2013.
He served just one year of a four-year term, while the organisation to which he belonged, the Muslim Brotherhood, has since been outlawed.
