Qatar’s leader on Thursday offered his condolences to Turkey’s president for a deadly train crash in the capital, Ankara.
Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani sent a condolence message to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, according to Qatar News Agency (QNA).
He extended condolences to families of those who lost their lives in the high-speed train crash.
At least nine people were killed and 47 others injured early Thursday when the train crashed into a pilot engine on the same rails, causing a pedestrian overpass to collapse onto train cars.
The train was en route to Konya in central Turkey.
