16-year-old martyr

A 16-year-old boy has been killed in clashes with riot police in Bahrain.
Husam al-Haddad died of injuries suffered after he was beaten by security forces in a confrontation late Friday night.
According to activist accounts given to the BCHR, al-Haddad was shot with shotgun pellets, and a family member said the youth was kicked repeatedly by a man in civilian clothing in front of security forces. When a family member was able to retrieve him, al-Haddad was soaked in blood, according to a witness.
The teenager's death brings the number of people who have died since protests calling for political reform began in February 2011 to 50.
