Morsi’s lawyer, Osama El Helw, told AFP: “We heard the banging on the glass cage from the rest of the other inmates and them screaming loudly that Morsi had died.”

State television quoted an unnamed medical source as saying Morsi had suffered a heart attack.

In the UK, MP Crispin Blunt, who had warned about Morsi's health, called for a “reputable independent international investigation”, and said Egypt's government had a “duty to explain his unfortunate death”.
