In Bahrain, protests broke out after the funeral of a teenager reportedly killed by police, who were trying to arrest him for participating in protests. Seventeen-year-old Ali Abdulghani died Monday in the hospital, four days after officers raided his family’s house. He was later found lying in the street, bleeding from a head injury, after a police chase. Witnesses said he was hit by a police vehicle. On Tuesday, funeral-goers blocked a road as police threw tear gas at the crowd in the town of Shahrakan.
