Turkish president, Tayyip Erdogan has claimed that the death of former Egyptian president was not a normal death. In his words, he said, “I don’t believe that this was a normal death.”
He further said, “They are so cowardly that they could not even deliver his body to his family.”
Erdogan was a close ally of Morsi during his short tenure as president and he denounced the Egyptian authorities for burying Morsi discreetly.
Morsi, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood had won Egypt’s first democratic election in 2012. He collapsed and died in court on Monday.
Thousands of mourners took part in prayers for the late Egyptian president on Wednesday, a day after his death as worshippers parked into squares and mosques in Ankara and Diyarbakir.
A small ceremony was held Tuesday in Egypt to bury Morsi in a cemetery in the east of Cairo after his family was denied from burying him at his home town by the Abdel Fattah el-Sisi’s government.
