Officials in Turkey took to Twitter on Monday to extend their sympathies for the death of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.
Axar.az reports citing Turkish media.
Presidential Communications Director Fahrettin Altun offered condolences to the Egyptian people and the Muslim world.
"Egypt's first democratically-elected President Mohammed Morsi who was overthrown by a bloody coup before the eyes of the whole world died in the courtroom. May he rest in peace," he said.
"My brother, you are free! May you rest in peace! May God rest your soul!," Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gul also tweeted.
Parliament Speaker Mustafa Sentop expressed deep sorrow for Morsi's death, which came in the courtroom where he faced a slew of charges.
"Condolences to the Egyptian people, Islamic world and all the oppressed people. I believe that his struggle and his life will guide those following him," Sentop wrote on the microblogging site.
"Mursi and his friends are the winners before the justice and history and the putschists are losers. Mursi is a great leader who has the courage to stand on the side of legitimacy. Mursi was imprisoned, but more free than those who imprisoned him," he wrote in a Turkish post.
Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said: "The struggle of democracy, the struggle of the search for rights and the struggle of the oppressed against the persecution has another martyr today. Of course there will be others, but none will ever be forgotten."
