Ousted Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi was afraid that someone might make an attempt on his life, Wael Haddara, a senior aide to the former president, told the BBC on Monday.

Morsi expressed fears he will be assassinated as early as December 2012. When he expressed these worries to the Republican Guard officers, they assured him that "he would never be treated with any indignity or disrespect."

Morsi was also willing to make concessions to protesters, Haddara said, but realized that no matter what he does, the army will not be happy with it.

The aide also said many Western diplomats offered to help mediate the crisis in Egypt in the days leading up to Morsi's ouster, but were turned down.
