Citystars is refusing to pay, stating that the private security firm is liable for damages which total EGP 80,000 in medical bills.
An Egyptian woman, who was severely wounded after a security dog at Citystars bit her arm, was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital. She is now asking the eastern Cairo mall for a million EGP in compensation for the incident that caused her "major physical and psychological damage", Youm7 reports.
The incident took place last Saturday at the famous mall in Nasr City, as the woman was passing a nearby garage security unit in which the dog was stationed to check for explosives. The mall's administration assured that liability of such incidents lies with the private security firm handling the mall's security.
Al Salam Hospital's medical report recommended a 21-day bed rest and treatment cost of EGP 80,000.
