Qatar ruler expresses ‘deep sorrow’ over Morsi death

Qatar’s ruler Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani expresses his “deep sorrow” Monday, following the “sudden death” of former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, who died in a Cairo hospital after fainting in court.

“We received with deep sorrow the news of the sudden death of former president Dr. Mohamed Morsi. I extend to his family and to the Egyptian people brotherly condolences,” Al-Thani writes on Twitter.

Qatar was a leading backer of the Islamist president during his brief tenure as Egypt’s leader.
