CAIRO – 28 February 2019: Liverpool Egyptian winger, Mohamed Salah, sent a message to support the families of the train crash victims.
“Condolences to the families of the victims of the train accident in Egypt and I wish quick recovery for all the injured,” Salah tweeted on Wednesday.

Immediately, security forces completely halted all movement and closed off the site with ambulances and firefighters nearby to control the situation and transfer the injured to the nearest hospitals.
