CAIRO — Ousted Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi met late Monday night with E.U. foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, her spokesman said Tuesday, the first time the deposed leader has been allowed to meet with the outside world after nearly four weeks of being held incommunicado.
Ashton met Morsi late Monday "and had a two hour in-depth discussion," Ahston's spokewoman Maja Kocijancic said by e-mail on Tuesday. She provided no further information and could not immediately be reached. She said that more information would be released later Tuesday.
