Former presidential candidate Amr Moussa blames lack of necessary safety measures for deaths on Monday of more than 21 central security officers in Sinai region

Soldiers from the Central Security Forces (CSF) who lost their lives on Monday are victims of negligence, stated eliminated presidential candidate Amr Moussa on his official Twitter account, Tuesday.

The former Arab League leader also sent his condolences to the victims' families.

More than 21 CSF soldiers were killed and 27 reported injured early Monday in Egypt's eastern Sinai Peninsula when, according to official reports, the driver of the car transporting the soldiers lost control of the steering wheel whilst driving over rugged terrain.

Moussa commented that transporting such a high number of soldiers in one car without taking the appropriate safety measures reflects negligence.

According to the Central Authority for Public Mobilisation and Statistics (CAPMAS), traffic accidents in Egypt cause an average of 19.5 deaths per day.
