Egypt's former president Mursi dies - state television
CAIRO, June 17 (Reuters) - Former Egyptian president Mohamed Mursi has died in court, state television reported on Monday.
It said Mursi had fainted after a court session and died afterwards.
Mursi, a top figure in the Muslim Brotherhood, was toppled by the military in 2013 after mass protests against this rule. He had been serving a seven-year sentence for falsifying his candidacy application for the 2012 presidential race.
