His death on Monday was announced on his official website. He died in the Gulf Arab nation of Qatar, where he had been living in exile following the military’s overthrow of a Muslim Brotherhood-led government in Egypt in 2013.

Al-Qaradawi had been tried and sentenced to death in absentia in Egypt.
