EU Envoy Visits Morsi

Deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi is apparently now accepting visitors. EU foreign-policy chief Catherine Ashton was taken to Morsi’s secret detention facility late Monday night, becoming the first outsider to see him since he was removed from office and detained by the Egyptian army. The Islamist politician is under investigation on charges that include murder. Ashton and Morsi had what she described as a “friendly, open, and very frank” two-hour talk, about which she revealed few details. “I’ve tried to make sure that his family knows he is well,” said Ashton, who saw inside of where Morsi is being held but, because she was flown there by helicopter at night, has no idea where he actually is.
