Mohammed Morsi — Egypt's first democratically-elected leader — has been hastily buried after abruptly dying from an apparent heart attack in court on Monday. Morsi was buried in an Islamist graveyard early on Tuesday, after Egyptian security forces denied his family's request to bury him at the family graveyard, his son Ahmed told The Associated Press. No press were in attendance and the government posted no about the funeral. Egyptian media has reportedly largely ignored his death. Morsi had been standing trial over claims that his Muslim Brotherhood government colluded with Hamas militants in 2013.
