The death of Mohamed Morsi

News of the demise of the first and only democratically elected President of Egypt on Monday blew most peoples' minds. The former President of Egypt had been confined inside a glass cage and was facing the latest in a long series of unfair trials. Mr. Mohamed had done a weak job as an Egyptian president prior to being ousted in a bloody military coup that was being led by the current dictator of the country, Abdel Fatah al-Sissi.

Mr. Mohamed collapsed minutes after addressing the court situated in Cairo, regarding the espionage charges that related to contacts suspected to be with the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, a group that had close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood.

The former Egyptian President spoke for at least five minutes behind a soundproof glass cage before collapsing dead. The cage was designed to keep him away from causing any disruptions in the court proceedings. He was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead at 16:50 local time (14:50 GMT).

A report released by the Egyptian public prosecutor indicated that the former President had no signs of recent injuries on his body. The Muslim Brotherhood, which is the most famous political movement in Egypt, denoted that Mr. Morsi's demise was a "full-fledged murder." The state television had earlier hinted that the cause of death of Mohamed was a heart attack.
