Former Egyptian President Morsi 'was killed', Turkey claims

UN calls for'prompt and thorough probe into Morsi's death

UN calls for'prompt and thorough probe into Morsi's death

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that Mohamed Morsi was "killed" and called for Egypt's government to face an worldwide investigation over the death.

Morsi died while appearing in court on spying charges.

On Wednesday, he said he would follow up on the process related to Morsi's death.

But Ankara's relations with Cairo deteriorated after the Egyptian military, then led by Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, ousted Morsi in 2013.

Egypt's Foreign Ministry, for its part, accused the United Nations of an attempt to "politicise" the death of Mohamed Morsi by urging that an "independent inquiry" be conducted.

The Turkish leader said Wednesday: "Unfortunately, Mohammed Morsi was on the ground of courtroom flailing for 20 minutes". "No official there intervened".

Morsi came to power after Hosni Mubarak was deposed in the 2011 Arab Spring, after which the Muslim Brotherhood was legalized with Morsi as its preferred candidate, winning the 2012 presidential election.

Morsi had been in custody since his removal in a 2013 military coup.

Mr Erdogan on Tuesday joined in prayer at an Istanbul mosque for the former Egyptian leader.

Rights groups Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have also called for a credible investigation into Morsi's death. His family was only allowed to visit three times. He died aged 67 during a court hearing on an espionage case in Cairo.

Egyptian rights groups hoped that Morsi's death will bring attention to the conditions inside prisons in Egypt.

He said the investigation must "encompass all aspects of the authorities' treatment of Mr Morsi to examine whether the conditions of his detention had an impact on his death".

"At the very least, the Egyptian government committed grave abuses against Morsi by denying him prisoners' rights that met minimum standards", the New York-based group's Sarah Leah Whitson said.
