Bahrain Youth Killed During Rally


Детский крестный ход на пасхальной седмице

Police in Bahrain are investigating the death of a teenager who was killed during an anti-government rally.

A government statement says the youth, identified as Ahmed Jaber, died late Thursday during violent clashes at a rally in the country's north.

Opposition and human rights groups say he died when a shot from a police pellet gun entered either his heart or lungs.

The government says it is investigating the case.

At least 30 people have died since Bahrain's Shi'ite-led majority began protesting to seek more political rights from the ruling Sunni monarchy.

Some information for this report was provided by AP, AFP and Reuters.
