Egypt’s former president Mohamed Morsi dies

(Cairo) – Former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi died on Monday in a Cairo hospital after fainting during a session in court, judicial and security sources said.

“He was speaking before the judge for 20 minutes then became very animated and fainted. He was quickly rushed to the hospital where he later died,” a judicial source said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a strong ally of president Morsi during his brief tenure as Egypt´s leader, paid tribute to Morsi and called him a “martyr”.

The official Al-Ahram news website also reported the death of Morsi, 67, who was Egypt´s first democratically elected president but spent just one turbulent year in office after the 2011 uprising before the army toppled him in 2013.
