ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday he believed the United Nations will look into the death of former Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi and hold those responsible accountable.

Mursi suffered a fatal heart attack in a Cairo court on Monday while on trial on espionage charges. Erdogan made the comment in a speech at a rare news conference with foreign journalists in Istanbul.
