    Portugal’s Foreign minister Augusto Santos Silva will also fly to Madeira on Thursday, and its Prime Minister Antonio Costa sent his “deepest condolences” to victims’ family.

    Merkel said German authorities were in contact with their Portuguese counterparts and stood ready to assist.

    “I think with sadness and shock of our compatriots and everybody else who was affected by the dreadful bus accident on Madeira,” she added in a Twitter statement posted by her spokesman.
