Clashes erupt after funeral in Bahrain

MANAMA, Bahrain — Police in Bahrain have fired tear gas at protesters following the funeral for a 22-year-old man whose family claims he was fatally injured during clashes earlier this month in the Gulf kingdom.

Witnesses say hundreds of people marched toward a police station after the burial of Fadhel Mirza, who died early Saturday after suffering head injuries March 1.

His family says he was hit at close range by a tear gas canister while walking near street battles between Shiite-led protesters and security forces for Bahrain’s Sunni monarchy. In the clashes after his funeral, witnesses say protesters threw firebombs at police.

More than 45 people have died in 13 months of unrest in Bahrain, where majority Shiites seek greater rights from Sunni rulers.
