Protester dies during rally in Bahrain

Manama, Bahrain: Hundreds of mourners gathered in Bahrain for the funeral of a protester, who his family say died in an anti government protest on Saturday.

 

The protester's uncle says his 16-year-old nephew, Ali Youssef Bagdar, died after a police vehicle ran over him during a demonstration early Saturday in Juffair area of the capital Manama.

 

A report by the state-run Bahrain News Agency says a police vehicle skidded into a group of "rioters" due to an oil spill on the road, killing the boy.
