Egypt’s ousted president Mohammed Morsi has collapsed during a court session and died, according to state TV.
The 67-year-old was attending a session in his trial on espionage charges when he blacked out and then died, state TV said.
His body was taken to a hospital, it said.
Morsi, who hailed from Egypt’s largest Islamist political group – the now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, was elected president in 2012 in the country’s first free elections following the ousting the year before of longtime leader Hosni Mubarak.
