MOI: Rumors of death at City Center mall false

-

No one has been killed at City Center mall, the Ministry of Interior has told Doha News in response to inquiries about online rumors of a shooting there.

A graphic image (included at the end of this post) of a man lying on the floor surrounded by a crowd of people in what appears to be a Khaleeji mall has been circulating on Blackberry Messenger and Twitter since yesterday, prompting questions about what happened and whether City Center has been closed.

But there have been “no complaints” of any incidences taking place at the mall, an MOI spokesman said.

People are also asserting that the photo was taken at Dubai’s Deira City Center mall or Saudi Arabia’s Rashid Mall in Khobar, although we’ve yet to see either of those claims substantiated.
