Islamabad, November 17, 2012 (PPI-OT): The government of Pakistan is deeply shocked to learn about the tragic accident between a school bus carrying 60 children and a train in the south of Cairo. We are deeply saddened by the reports that the death toll may have reached 47.
We offer our sincere condolences and sympathies to the government of Egypt and our heart goes out to the bereaved parents and families who have lost their near and dear ones. May Allah grant them the courage and patience to bear this irreparable loss and bless the souls of the innocent children and the others who have met with their Creator.
