Egypt sent its condolences Wednesday to Italy over the deaths of 37 in the collapse of a bridge in Genoa on Tuesday, a statement by the Egyptian foreign ministry read. 

"The Egyptian foreign ministry expressed its sincere condolences to the families of the victims and wished the victims a speedy recovery," the statement read, stressing that "the Egyptian government and its people will stand with the government and people of Italy in this ordeal."

A 50-metre (160-foot) high section of the Morandi bridge, including a tower that anchored several stays, collapsed Tuesday with as many as 35 vehicles driving on it.

Huge slabs of reinforced concrete plunged onto two warehouses, train tracks, and a riverbed.
