In a statement, Mousavi said, “We received with great sorrow the news of the sudden death of former president Mohamed Morsi. We offer our deepest condolences to his family and Egyptian people and wish him mercy, and his family and great nation of Egypt patience and health”.

Former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has died aged 67 after collapsing in a Cairo court while on trial on espionage charges, according to authorities.
