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, reports BBC.

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.unb
