Egypt’s ex-prez Mohammed Morsi dies in court

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.

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