Ministry of Interior said in one of its first report "The report of Bahrain International Hospital attributed the death of Ahmed Jaber to sever drop in blood circulation led to the heart to stop"

This morning it has again reported that "The report of medical examiner of the Public Prosecution attributed the death of Ahmed Jaber to injury of a birdshot" and said that "The Ministry of Interior launches immediate investigation of the death of Ahmed Jaber". More details

Numerous protests came out at the news of his killing, and they were heavily attacked by security forces who are using excessive force, with numerous injuries being reported. 

Most of the anger tonight in Bahrain is being directed towards the United States specifically pointing to the announced arms deal, and the United Nations as people say they have failed to deliver on their responsibilities against human rights violations.

Ahmed AlQattan is the 4th killed child since Feb 14, and the 13th person to die of injuries caused by birdshot. See a list of all those killed since the start of the protest on 14 Feb 2011


Bahrain pledges probe into teen death during rally

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 07 Oct 2011 Bahrain has ordered an investigation into the death of a teenage boy who opposition groups claim was killed by police gunfire during an anti-government protest.

Seventeen-year-old Ahmed Jaber died late Thursday during a violent rally in the Gulf kingdom.

Opposition groups say he was shot by a police birdshot - used for crowd control - and a pellet entered his heart or lungs. Bahrain police say they used only tear gas and concussion grenades to respond to a violent protest in the Abu Saiba area in northern Bahrain.

A government statement on Friday says the cause of death was listed as cardiac arrest and promises a full probe.

At least 35 people have died since Bahrain's Shiite-led majority began protests in February seeking greater rights from the ruling Sunni monarchy.
