ABU DHABI 8 June 2021: The UAE has expressed its solidarity with Pakistan over the victims of the collision of two passenger trains in the south of the country, which resulted in casualties.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation offered its heartfelt condolences and extended its sympathies to the Government of Pakistan and to the families of the victims of this tragedy.

The ministry also expressed its wishes for the speedy recovery of the injured, said Wam.

More than 30 dead

More than 30 people died after two trains collided in southern Pakistan on Monday, a police official told local media.

At least 30 dead had been transported to surrounding hospitals, senior district police official Umar Tufail told local television channel Geo News.

He said he expected the toll to shoot up as there were still mangled train compartments that rescuers had not been able to access despite the passage of hours since the accident in the Ghotki district of the southern Sindh province.

He said there were up to 25 people in one compartment yet to be accessed.
