The death of former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi during his trial

Former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi died on Monday afternoon after losing consciousness while attending a trial in one of the cases he was accused of, according to judicial and security sources.

The two sources said that "Mursi spoke before the court for 20 minutes and then acted and then was taken to the hospital where he died" at the age of 68 years.

Egyptian Attorney General Nabil Sadeq said in a statement on Monday that Mohamed Morsi (formerly Egyptian president) had fallen unconscious in the cage and was taken to hospital immediately after speaking for 5 minutes before the court and then adjourned the hearing. Showed no recent injuries to his body.

Morsi was attending a retrial session with 23 others in the case of "contacts with foreign powers" including Hamas and Qatar.

He was sent to life imprisonment in the first trial in June 2015, but the Court of Cassation overturned the verdict and ordered a retrial.

In the first reaction to his death, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan described Morsi as a "martyr".

Mursi, who took office in 2012 more than a year after the revolution that overthrew his predecessor Hosni Mubarak, is the first democratically elected president in Egypt.

On March 3, 2013, the army overthrew Morsi after massive demonstrations demanding his departure, detention and then being referred to trial on several counts.

In November 2016, the Court of Cassation annulled his death sentence in the "escape from prison" case and decided to retry him.

The process of overthrowing the Brotherhood of the Muslim Brotherhood has launched a campaign of massression in which hundreds of supporters were killed and a painful blow to the group.
