Ousted Egyptian president Morsi dies after collapsing in court

A judicial official says Morsi had asked to speak to the court during the session. The judge permitted it, and Morsi gave a speech saying he had “many secrets” that, if he told them, he would be released, but he adds that he wasn’t telling them because it would harm Egypt’s national security.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday pays tribute to former Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi, calling him a “martyr.”

“May Allah rest our Morsi brother, our martyr’s soul in peace,” says Erdogan, who had forged close ties with Morsi.
