Democracy Now: Gov’t Forces Kill Young Protester in Bahrain


Protests against the U.S.-backed monarchy in Bahrain continued over the weekend, leading to at least one death. A 16-year-old demonstrator was killed on Friday in what activists called a brutal attack by the Bahraini police. The victim, Hussam al-Haddad, was reportedly shot before being assaulted by police in civilian clothes. His death came days after the prominent Bahraini human rights activist Nabeel Rajab was sentenced to three years in prison.
