Chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party, Saad al-Katatni, paid condolences to the families of victims of the tragic Bardashin train accident that happened overnight.
"The reoccurring catastrophic train accidents are evidence for the almost completely crumpling infrastructure that is a result of years of corruption under (Hosni) Mubarak, and is a wake up call to us all," Katatni posted on his Twitter account on Tuesday.
He called on Egyptians to overcome political differences and cooperate to "rebuild Egypt."
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.
