Egypt’s ousted president Mohamed Morsi has collapsed during a court session and died, Egyptian state TV said today.
The 67-year-old apparently fainted during a hearing where he faced espionage charges.
Morsi, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, served as the fifth President of Egypt from June 2012 and July 2013. He was removed by military coup, following massive protests by Egyptians. Following his removal from office he faced a string of serious charges, including inciting the killing of his opponents.
He was sentenced to death on espionage, prison break and terrorism charges in May 2015, but the ruling was overturned the following year.
Situation is breaking and will be updated.
