Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan attended a ceremony at a mosque in Istanbul, where he raised question marks over the circumstances of Egyptian ex-President Mohamed Morsi’s death.
The former Egyptian leader, deposed in a coup in 2013, had died in court on Monday. He’d been on trial for spying charges.
At Istanbul’s Fatih mosque where thousands joined in prayers, Erdogan called Morsi a “martyr” and blamed Egypt’s “tyrants” for his death adding that he didn’t believe that Morsi died of natural causes.
