Egypt’s first democratic president, Morsi collapses, dies in court
Egypt’s first democratically elected president, Mohammed Morsi, 67, has died after he collapsed in court. Morsi was ousted by the Egyptian army in 2013,.
According to State TV, he reportedly collapsed after a court session where he was facing espionage charges and subsequently died.
He served for only one year of a four-year term, while the organisation to which he belonged, the Muslim Brotherhood, has since been outlawed. The Cairo Criminal Court had postponed the trial of Morsi and 23 others in the case of “collaborating with Hamas” for tomorrow.
