Egypt’s Former President Mohamed Morsi Dies: State Media

Cairo: Egypt’s former President Mohamed Morsi has died after appearing in court, according to state media.

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.
