The former President of Egypt, Mohamed Morsi, has been removed from office.

On Sunday, he was removed from the post of Egypt’s president and removed from all his posts on Twitter, including his personal account, Al Jazeera reported.

Morsi, who is the son of ousted former President Hosni Mubarak, was in office for 12 years, from 2013 to 2016.

He led the country for six of those years.

He was widely criticised for his handling of the country’s economic and political crisis, as well as his use of social media.

Al Jazeera’s Imran Khan, reporting from Cairo, said Morsi had been removed as president of Egypt in order to allow the interim government to take power and to replace him with his son.

Al Qaeda-linked group Al Nusra Front, which is also known as ISIS, has claimed responsibility for the attack, Al-Jazeera reported.

Al Nusra has been active in northern Syria, and has stepped up its attacks in Egypt, a US ally, since the fall of Mubarak in 2013.
