Cairo, June 18 (TIWN) Former Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi has been buried following his sudden death after he collapsed in a courtroom during an ongoing trial, his son confirmed on Tuesday.

Mursi, a top figure in the now-banned Muslim Brotherhood, had been in jail since being toppled by the military in 2013 after barely a year in power following mass protests against his rule.

The public prosecutor said he had collapsed in a defendants’ cage in the courtroom shortly after speaking, and had been pronounced dead in hospital at 4:50 p.m. (1450 GMT). It said an autopsy had shown no signs of recent injury on his body.
