Customer demands payout from store

A WOMAN who was injured in an attack at a southwest China's Carrefour store in November has taken the retail giant to court, demanding compensation for her injuries.

Wuhua Court in Kunming, capital of Yunnan Province, heard Xie Guomei's case on Wednesday but did not hand down a ruling.

The 33-year-old woman was shopping at a Carrefour on November 29, 2008 in Kunming when Lu Zhiwen cut her left arm with a knife.

"My muscle atrophy never recovered and the doctors said my left hand might not be able to function well," Xie told Xinhua yesterday.

Xie wants 170,000 yuan (US$24,285) in compensation from Carrefour for the injury.

Xie insisted Carrefour was responsible for her injuries because the French retailer lacked adequate security.

The attacker was shot dead at the scene.
