Unrest in Bahrain over death of teenager

Text size Aa Aa

Tension remains high in Bahrain, a day after the funeral of a teenager allegedly killed after being hit by a tear gas cannister fired by the police.

Thousands chanted slogans against the King of the Gulf state and demonstrations later took place.

The government has died that police were to blame for the death of 14-year-old Ali Jawad Ahmad. It has offered a reward for information about the incident.

After the funeral, trouble erupted in mostly Shi’ite areas. These have been flashpoints ever since the Sunni-dominated government clamped down on anti-government protests earlier this year.

About 30 people were killed in the unrest.
