Paet Extends Condolences for Moscow Tragedy ({{commentsTotal}})


Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet has issued a statement of condolence to his counterpart Sergei Lavrov after a Metro train derailed in Moscow on Tuesday morning, leaving at least 20 dead.

Paet also wished those injured, thought to be 100, a speedy recovery.

The underground commuter train derailed in Moscow during the morning rush hour. The death toll could rise even further, as 50 people are in serious condition. BBC reported that no foreigners were among the injured, and the cause could have been a power surge.
