Former Egyptian Leader Buried, After Death In Court

Former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi  has been buried hours after he collapsed in Court and died on Monday.

His lawyer says former leader had been buried in Eastern Cairo early this morning with his family present.

Morsi, who was 67, had been in custody since his removal from office in 2013.

His family and activists had repeatedly raised concerns about his health and the amount of time he was kept in solitary confinement, away from visits by lawyers and family.

His son, Abdullah Mohamed Morsi, says that Egyptian authorities had denied a family request for a public funeral in his hometown.

The Muslim Brotherhood and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a close ally of Morsi, are among those who have blamed the Egyptian leadership for Morsi’s death.

Morsi was already facing decades in jail after being sentenced in three other trials. He had previously been given a death sentence, which was later overturned.
