REUTERS/Amr Abdallah Dalsh /File PhotoAbdul-Moneim Abdel-Maqsoud a member of Morsi’s defense team said he was buried at a cemetery in the Cairo’s eastern district of Nasr City.This was despite his family’s plea and wishes to have the former president buried at the family’s cemetery in his hometown in Sharqia province.AP reports that security agents turned reporters away from the cemetery, banning them from taking photographs of the funeral. Reporters were also barred from traveling to Morsi’s hometown.Morsi, 67, was elected president in 2012 in the country’s first free elections following the ouster the year before of long-time leader Hosni Mubarak.He was subsequently toppled in 2013 after massive protests and crushed the Brotherhood in a major crackdown, arresting Morsi and many others of the group’s leaders.During his years in prison, Morsi, who was known to have diabetes, was often held in solitary confinement and was largely barred from receiving visitors.His family was only allowed to visit three times and while in detention, Morsi continued to appear in court on a range of charges.Late Monday, Egypt’s chief prosecutor said Morsi’s body would be examined to determine the cause of his death.State TV, citing an unnamed medical source, said he died after suffering a heart attack.Morsi collapsed Monday just after he had addressed the court, speaking from inside the glass cage and warning that he had “many secrets” he could reveal, a judicial official said.Related Ugandan President Criticizes Former Premier Former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi dead aged 67center_img Egypt’s President in Rwandalast_img read more

Lee shows promise, wraps up second title

first_img IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 “It feels like I’m dreaming. I didn’t really think I had a chance of winning today so I’m absolutely delighted,” said Lee after winning her first title since the 2001 Daio Paper Elleair Ladies Open.Teeing off the day in fifth, Lee slipped further back after three putting on the first for a bogey but began to find her form and picked up shots on the fifth and the eighth.Lee ran in a 12-foot birdie putt on the 10th to pick up her third shot of the day and went top of the leaderboard for good with three consecutive birdies from the 14th.“I got a bit of a shock when I looked up at the scoreboard on the 15th and saw myself in the lead.

Asia shines in Cricket World Cup

first_imgThe captains of all three nations and New Zealand — which at least reached the semifinal — have either quit or are on the verge of doing so.Australia’s Ricky Ponting stepped down after one of Australia’s weakest performances for many years. South Africa’s Graeme Smith has dropped the captaincy of the one-day team. England’s Andrew Strauss and Kiwi Daniel Vettori are considering their futures.Apart from New Zealand, the three traditional powers of world cricket were poorly prepared for the World Cup. England looked exhausted after almost six months on the road. Australia is still struggling to carry out the transition from the era of Glenn McGrath, Shane Warne and Adam Gilchrist, who watched India lift the trophy at Wankhede Stadium on Saturday night.South Africa, on paper, looked like a commanding team but was unable to finish off games. Bangladesh is still a minor nation in international cricket, even though it occasionally beats the powers.Pakistan should have been one of the hosts and might have advanced to the final had its players been allowed to play on the slow wickets of Lahore and Karachi, according to the original plan.But the 2009 attack on the Sri Lanka team bus in Lahore meant Pakistan had to give up its status as co-host. Otherwise the tournament could have been fatally damaged by nations refusing to travel there.In a blow to Pakistan leading to the tournament, the country lost three players to a match-fixing scandal. But it found an unlikely star in Shahid Afridi, who took on the captaincy apparently on condition that he be given complete control over team selection, a rare opportunity in the intensely political world of Pakistani cricket.Afridi led a resurgent Pakistan team that just failed at the semifinal hurdle to the eventual winners. Pakistan could have won but for some inexplicably slow batting.Sri Lanka, given the chance to play all but two of their games on the slow-turning wickets they are used to in Colombo, Kandy and Hambantota, dismissed England and New Zealand with ease thanks to explosive batting that set the tournament alight and the bowling of spinner Muttiah Muralitharan and Lasith Malinga.It was India that showed the consistency and depth of a champion. In the final, main batsmen Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag may have failed, but Gautam Gambhir, captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh stepped in with winning performances. Job well done: Sachin Tendulkar and title-winning India led a strong contingent of Asian teams at the 2011 Cricket World Cup. | AP PHOTO MUMBAI — India’s in cricket heaven, Sri Lanka reached the final and Pakistan the last four. Of cricket’s main Asian nations, only Bangladesh had a bad World Cup.Australia, South Africa and England? They were reduced to watching the World Cup final on television, admiring India’s maturity and talent and wondering why they flopped.
