Egypt's ex-president Mohamed Morsi, who was ousted in 2013 following a popular uprising, died on Monday in Cairo after suffering a heart attack during a trial session in an espionage case, according to Egyptian state TV.
Morsi, who was 67, was pronounced dead shortly after fainting during the session, which he attended as a defendant.
Before his demise, the presiding judge allowed Morsi to speak upon his request. 
According to informed judicial sources, Morsi was treated in accordance with the law while in detention, and was being examined by doctors on a regular basis.
Morsi's body has been transferred to an unnamed hospital.
