Bahraini teenager killed in Friday's protest
DUBAI (REUTERS) - Bahraini riot police killed a teenager when they fired shotgun pellets during clashes with protesters following a demonstration on Friday, the country's opposition said on Saturday, the second young protester to die in six weeks.
Thousands rallied on Friday in an officially authorised protest called by the main opposition group al-Wefaq, but as the event ended around 100 demonstrators clashed with police.
Witnesses on Friday said riot police used tear gas and stun grenades to disperse those demonstrators, who, the authorities said, were throwing petrol bombs and wielding iron bars.
The police described the incident after the protest as a"terrorist attack" on a security patrol that "targeted the lives of members of the patrol" late on Friday evening.
