Former President of Egypt Mohamed Morsi has died in court, Egyptian state television said Monday.

It said Mursi had fainted after a court session and died afterwards. He had been serving a seven-year sentence for falsifying his candidacy application for the 2012 presidential race.

Morsi, who died at the age of 67, was Egypt’s first democratically elected president. In 2013, he was removed from power in a military coup led by current President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi.

The jailed former leader was facing an array of charges in multiple court cases
