Pakistan has condoled with Egyptian Government and people on loss of lives to a road accident in southern Egypt.
“We express the deepest sympathies to the families of the deceased and pray for speedy recovery of those injured.
“Pakistan stands in solidarity with the fraternal people and government of Egypt in this moment of grief,’’ Pakistani Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday in a statement.
At least 22 people were killed and 33 others injured earlier in the day in a road accident, 200km away from Cairo.
The accident involving a bus and a truck occurred on the desert road of Minya Province in southern Egypt.
“A passenger bus travelling to Cairo from the southern Province of Sohag crashed into the back of a truck parking on the side of the road for changing its tyres,’’ Gov. Osama Al Qady said.
