Turkey’s president insists Morsi was killed

Turkey’s president says he’ll try to ensure that the Egyptian government faces trial in an international court over the death of ousted President, Mohammed Morsi.

He collapsed and died while on trial in a Cairo court for spying, BBC reports.

“Morsi was killed, he did not die of natural causes,” Turkey’s leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, contradicting Egypt’s public statements on the death.

Concerns have been raised by the UN and others about the conditions of Mr Morsi’s detention, and his access to medical care.

Egypt has accused its critics of trying to “politicise” what it says was “a natural death”.

Mr Erdogan had close ties with Mr Morsi before he was deposed by the military six years ago.
