Teen dies as crowds protest in Bahrain on 2nd anniversary of uprising

A teen died in clashes in Bahrain as protesters hit the streets Thursday on the two-year anniversary of a failed uprising in the nation, authorities said.

Authorities are investigating the Thursday morning death of a 16-year-old teen and trying to determine how it occurred, according to a government statement.

Al-Wefaq, Bahrain's main Shiite opposition party, said the teen was killed when he was hit by bird pellets shot by Bahraini security forces.

    Let's talk sanity! First of all, the majority of Shia Muslims in Bahrain are the cause of all problems as their loyality goes to the cursed country of Iran. Second, the free Syrian people are being killed daily and since ever by a regime that's being controlled by Bashar Alassad who's loyal to Iran. Third, same thing is going on in other nearby regions where Shias are killing Sunnah as they answers for calls of Iran to extrminate Sunnah. Fourth, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is the only thing that's keeping the region peacefully together. All GCC states are governed by Sunnah Muslims and living in peace (UAE, Kuwait, KSA, Oman, Bahrain and Qatar). Shias are like cancer in the region and should be eliminated if they don't want to live peacefully with Sunnah. If they don't like it at Bahrain or any other GCC state, then they must leave at once to Iran. I was sad that a police officer was killed. May he rest in peace.
