RIYADH – A girl, 4 years old, has been mauled to death by a pack of five

It’s understood the girl, identified only by her first name Shahd, was away on holiday at the time of the attack.

Witnesses described hearing her screams as the animals savaged her in the suburb of Al Washaila, some 25 kilometres (16 mi) south-west of the Saudi capital, Riyadh, on the evening of March 12.

Passers-by managed to chase away the dogs, and the girl was rushed to hospital. Due to coronavirus restrictions, her family was forced to wait outside while doctors attempted to safe her life.

Her uncle, Abdullah Hazzam Al Abd Al Salam, told local media that medics reassured him that his niece’s condition was stable.
