Report: Egypt's Ousted President Morsi Dies During Trial

Egypt's former President Mohammed Morsi, who was ousted by the army in 2013, has died after fainting in a courtroom at the age of 67, according to state media reports, the BBC said Monday. 

Morsi was a figure in the Islamist movement Muslim Brotherhood, which has been banned in Egypt. Morsi was in court for a hearing on espionage charges. 

Egyptian authorities cracked down on Morsi's supporters and the Brotherhood after he was removed from power. 

Morsi had a history of health issues. He suffered from medical neglect during his imprisonment, according to Al Jazeera.
