Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has called for investigations in the tragic train accident that occurred overnight and a plan to prevent similar crashes from taking place in the future.
The Brotherhood said in a statement on Tuesday, "With the reoccurring accidents and continuing series of bloodshed on railroads, we call on all state institutions to conduct investigations to identify the cause of the accident and bring those responsible for it to justice."
Paying condolences to the families of the victims, it added, "We also ask the government to draft a well-studied and clear plan to prevent future accidents."
A train traveling from Upper Egypt to Cairo derailed on Tuesday morning, killing 19 conscripts and injuring 107, in yet another traffic tragedy.
In a similar incident, 50 people, mostly children, were killed when a school bus crashed into a train in a city South of Cairo in November.
