Pool hall in Giza’s Haram district attacked by “bearded men.”
CAIRO: Egyptian media reports mentioned the details of a pool hall shooting and affirmed that “bearded men” are behind the incident that left four seriously injured in Giza’s Haram area on Friday.
Four young men were shot in the arm and chest during a game of pool when three men came inside the game room and asked the young men to stop playing and “do something useful.”
Eyewitnesses reported that the men told them what they were doing was “haram,” or forbidden, in Islam.
When a young kid replied rudely to the men, they came back a few minutes later and opened fire. Eyewitnesses said at least 15 people took part in the attack. They used live ammunition and rubber bullets.
