    Former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi has died after fainting during a session in a Cairo court, according to state media.

    A top figure in the Muslim Brotherhood and the first democratically elected president in Egypt's modern history, Morsi had been in jail since he was toppled by the military in 2013 after mass protests against his rule.

    State television said Morsi, 67, was in court on Monday for a hearing on charges of espionage emanating from suspected contacts with the Palestinian group Hamas. His body was taken to a hospital.

    People around the world issued statements on the sudden death of Morsi.

    Here is what they had to say.

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan
    Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the president of Turkey, paid tribute to Morsi, calling him a "martyr".

    "May Allah rest our Morsi brother, our martyr's soul in peace," said Erdogan, who had forged close ties with the former president.


    United Nations
    United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric offered condolences to Morsi's relatives and supporters.


    Human Rights Watch
    Sarah Leah Whitson, executive director of Human Rights Watch's Middle East and North Africa division, called Morsi's death "terrible but entirely predictable", given the government's failure to allow him adequate medical care.

    First democratically elected - however, no so "democratically" as Thaksin family members PM's.

    Thai military junta still has lot of to learn: Despite not killing thousands and not jailing, torturing the deposed PM, not being recognized by the "international community", like the peaceful Egyptian junta...
