Asir – A primary school girl got severely hurt as she was pouring hot Arabic coffee to the mothers of new students in the province of Asir.
The Directorate of Education set up a probe committee into the incident which happened at Al-Wadain Primary school in the governorate of Ohud Rafida.
A picture of 12-year's hand with scalded skin was posted on the social media prompting the authorities to launch an inquiry.
