Aamal’s City Center Mall in Qatar Shuts, The Peninsula Says

June 20, 2012

Aamal Co. (AHCS)’s City Center mall in Qatar is closed because of faults in its safety system, and no date has been set for reopening, The Peninsula reported, without saying how the information was obtained.

The mall has been shut since June 15, the newspaper said. An Aamal spokesman wasn’t available for comment when contacted by phone.

The shutdown of City Center comes after the Villaggio mall was closed following a May 28 fire that killed 19 people including 13 children in a child play center. City Center and Villaggio are the biggest malls in the country.
