17 year old killed during clashes with Bahrain riot Police

Riot police officers in Bahrain killed a teenager with birdshot on Friday during clashes with protesters after a legal demonstration, the police confirmed on Saturday. He was the second young protester to die in six weeks.

Thousands rallied on Friday in an officially authorized protest called by the main opposition group, Al Wefaq, but as the event ended, around 100 demonstrators clashed with police officers, witnesses said.

Al Wefaq identified the dead protester as Ali Hussain Nima, 17, and distributed photographs showing a body covered in blood and flecked with birdshot wounds. The authenticity of the pictures could not be verified. The officers used tear gas and stun grenades to disperse the demonstrators, who, the authorities said, were throwing gas bombs and wielding iron bars.

The police described the clashes as a “terrorist attack” on a security patrol. The officers defended themselves “according to their legal authority,” a police statement said.

Bahrain, headquarters of the United States Navy’s Fifth Fleet, has been in turmoil since its Shiite Muslim majority started mass demonstrations at the height of Arab Spring unrest last year. The protests were quashed by the Sunni monarchy, which imposed martial law and invited Saudi Arabia to send troops in support.

In mid-August, a 16-year-old protester was killed when police officers fired birdshot during clashes after a demonstration, opposition activists said.

The opposition says more than 45 people have been killed in protests since martial law was lifted in June 2011. The Interior Ministry says that protesters have injured more than 700 police officers and that the authorities have exercised restraint.

    Pictures of the boy’s body show it covered in bruises. Doctors couldn’t
    stop him bleeding from the mouth.  He was beaten to death by police
    after being shot in the back with birdshot.

      They still arm the puppet regime, Nor do they sanction/condemn the criminal regime. These people are still peacefully protesting till this day.

    •  I will pretend to be a asaad supporter..
      “that boy was killed by the shitte protestors, the terrorists funded by iran and russia blah blah blah”

        They still are peaceful and have not taken up arms, The Bahraini revolution started before the Syria one.

        • 5thDrawer

          And, Moe, we take note that only 45 have died. Only 2 in six weeks.
          Where 1000’s demonstrated, only 100 began the violence that led to the death.
          Certainly a far cry from Syria and the regime reactions to initial peaceful protests.
          If the people continue peacefully making their points in Bahrain, and keep the petrol-bomb throwers out of it, they have a much better chance of ‘winning’ …  than in Syria.

        •  Yeh because the Bahraini regime isn’t massacring children after torturing them. Isn’t slaughtering civilians in the tens of thousands, isn’t imprisoning protestors in the tens, if not more, of thousands!!!
          But keep telling yourself that you are on the right of side of the truth. 

        •  Oh btw, show me pictures of the shiite areas of Bahrain and let’s compare those to the sunni areas of Syria. Were whole villages and towns razed to the ground in Bahrain? Is the regime in Bahrain using migs and tanks to slaughter civilians?? I guess the truth is conveniently ignored when you are justifying injustice.

        hahaha; i did not know this was a comic blog; hahaha; if you want pictures of the shia areas in the gulf countries go take them yourself; hahaha; the police will break your jaws as well as your camera; why do you want us to be beaten and arrested for a stupid remark like this one; maybe you end up hung or beheaded in saoudi arabia; oops as a jew, despite the alliance, you do not even need to be in posession of shiite pictures, you will be automatically hung; your crime in these salfi gulf democracies is that you are a yahoodi

      • NAYYASHME3RAB

        are you trying to convince us that a salafi regime in syria is preferred to the alawi regime who offered the golan such a beautiful peace for more than 40 years? hahaha; come on man; dont over do it; you are not a good actor. You need to go to hollywood for some training

    5thdrawer: oh boy oh boy oh boy; assad is not fighting the sunna & whatever killing happened was certainly not unidirectional; assad himself is a sunna according to the syrian constitution. By the way many sunna are fighting in his ranks whereas 11000 shia were refused renewing of visas to the gulf states. If you want my opinion , why did syria arrive to what it is today, it is because assad son, unlike assad father, is a naive person who believed in democracy and he was going in that direction despite the advice of his own tribe which stipulated that democracy is not of application in syria if the alawis want to stay alive.

    • hezzies are terrorists

       “assad himself is a sunna… blah blah blah” LOL oh that’s just too too funny.. Plz stop you are killing me with laughter.. I guess that’s what you meant when you threatened me previously, from behind your computer screen.. seriously you are too funny. “assad himself is a sunna” hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

      • NAYYASHME3RAB

        buddy i never threatened you or anybody else either here or in any other place; i never threaten; if i want to do something, i do it directly; maybe your poor command of english made you believe so; maybe your paranoid attitude; or maybe your jewish egocentrism: you believe everything goes around you. Further, before making fun of issues you do not know, please go and review the syrian constitution; now i am excluding you from the list of mossad; any valuable mossad agent should know that assad converted to sunnism, for the form. You are either a jew fanatic  amateur or a kind of cheap mossad agent; i understand the mossad do not want to invest a lot in such kind of blogs

      Assad Son who believed in Democracy lol. Is that why he murdered 18 people inluding hariri and his entourage? is that way he killed Gibran Tueni, George hawi and many others.. that’s how he promoted democracy? stop telling us it was the zionist because many recents assasinations attempts the records from the communications ministry was blocked by hezbollah.. why are they doing it if they’re not behind these assasinations? He tried to promote democracy maybe but the clowns who have surrounded his father were afraid to loose their power so they returned it to the status quo of his father regime and he got now what he deserve and his cronies too. he may survive the war for now but how many sunnis he is going to kill.. they will keep coming until they overrun him. then next Hezbollah will be eating alive..
