The youngest son of deceased Egyptian ex-president Mohamed Morsi himself died on Wednesday night of a heart attack in Cairo, a family lawyer said. Abdallah Morsi, 25, suffered the fatal cardiac arrest while at the wheel of his car, Abdel Moneim Abdel Maqsoud told. “A friend who was with him was able to stop the car and take him to hospital,” said the lawyer, adding that Abdallah Morsi’s funeral was set to take place on Thursday. Mohamed Morsi — who as Egypt’s first freely elected president headed an administration loyal to the now banned Muslim Brotherhood until he was deposed by the military in 2013 — died in court on June 17.—INP
