Egypt offered condolences on Tuesday to Mexico over the death of scores of people in a subway bridge collapse.

A statement issued by the Foreign Ministry expressed sympathy with the families of the victims in this tragic incident, wishing the wounded a speedy recovery.

At least 23 people were killed and 65 were hospitalized when a railway overpass and train collapsed onto a busy road in Mexico City on Monday night, crushing cars under fallen carriages and rubble.

At least two train carriages precariously hung from the damaged overpass. Initial rescue efforts saw medical and fire crews trying to access the carriages. The army was also in attendance.
