On his Facebook account, Douma said some men tried to beat the girls with the sticks“but a couple of their men said leave the girls alone, which caused a distraction and thentraffic started moving.”
“We are safe, just a couple of bruises on all of us,” said Hefzy, adding they took pictures of the broken taxi, and went to the hospital in order to get a medical report of the bruises.
