PHOTOS: Ceiling collapses at ice cream shop in Landmark mall


The ceiling at the Haagen Dazs ice cream shop in Landmark Mall apparently collapsed this morning. There are no reported injuries, but photos of the damage began spreading quickly on social media, with residents once again expressing concern about building safety.

Sunniya Pirzada, a freelance journalist living in Qatar who took the above shots, told Doha News that she heard the ceiling collapse this morning: 

I was paying for my stuff in the shop next door and heard a big thud and walked out to see that it was the ceiling that had just collapsed …

The security and haagen dazs staff were panicking. It happened at 9.15 this morning so i think there were no customers there at the time… but it literally just seemed to have come down just like that…

A receptionist at the mall told Doha News that the shop has been closed for maintenance and did not say when it would re-open.

Meanwhile, a recent earthquake in Iran that could be felt in Qatar has brought back conversations about the importance of emergency preparedness here.
