Egypt’s ousted president Mohammed Morsi dies


–Egypt’s first democratically elected president, fainted after court session and died afterwards

Egypt’s former President Mohamed Morsi died on Monday after appearing in court, according to state media.

State TV 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.
