Death of a president: Egypt's bitter divide over Mohamed Morsi

Mohamed Morsi collapsed in court on Monday after six years of trials and solitary confinement. The Muslim Brotherhood high-up was 67. Turkey's president hailed Morsi as a martyr, a reminder of that sharp Middle East divide over the Muslim Brotherhood that came to a head after the Arab Spring with the 2013 coup that ousted Morsi, the blockade of Qatar by Gulf States, and even Donald Trump's potential plans to put the Brotherhood on its list of terror organisations.
