FOOD poisoning is more likely to kill some people than others - and it's got nothing to do with what they ate. John Cooper and his wife Susan who died on holiday in Egypt were killed by e. Coli, it has been revealed today. The Brit couple lost their lives within hours of each other at Aqua Magic hotel in the Red Sea resort town of Hurghada last month.

The 67-year-old Islamist had just addressed the court on Monday, warning that he had "many secrets" he could reveal, a judicial official told the Associated Press.

His death is likely to pile pressure on the Egyptian government over its human rights record, especially conditions in prisons where thousands of Islamists and secular activists are held. Morsi was buried in Cairo in the presence of some family members, one of his lawyers said early Tuesday. In his final comments, he continued to insist he was Egypt's legitimate president. 'Premeditated murder' Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood accused the government of "assassinating" him through years of poor prison … [Read more...] about Outcry as Egypt’s ousted president Morsi dies in court
