Egypt’s former president Mohammed Morsi, who was ousted by the army in 2013, has died after fainting in a courtroom, state TV says.
Morsi, a former top figure in the now-banned Islamist movement Muslim Brotherhood, was at a session over accusations of espionage. He was 67.
He was overthrown following mass protests a year after he took office as the country’s first democratically elected leader.
He had remained in custody since then.
“The body has been transferred to a hospital and necessary procedures are under way,” Nile News TV said.
