AI urges Bahrain to probe teenage death

AI urges Bahrain to probe teenage deathAmnesty International (AI) has urged Bahraini authorities to launch an impartial probe into the assassination of a boy shot and martyred at a demonstration earlier this week.

According to IRIB, in a statement issued on its website on Friday, the rights group said the regime must ensure accountability in the assassination of 14-year-old Seyed Mahmood Seyed Mohsen, who was martyred at the demonstration in the village of Sitra, south of the capital Manama, on Wednesday.
Bahrain is facing international pressure over the assassination of the teenage protester.
Amnesty has also called on Manama to launch a prompt investigation into all cases of torture, ill-treatment and martyrdoms that occurred during protests and in custody.
The group criticized Bahrain for the lack of transparency in investigations into assassinations at protests.
