Parents mourn the death of their 16 year old son who was allegedly beaten and killed by Bahraini security forces.

Thousands gathered to mourn the death of Hummam Al Haddad, a sixteen year old boy who was allegedly shot, beaten and killed by Bahraini security forces. At the funeral Bahrainis shouted for the king and his successors to step down. Heavily armed regime forces reportedly blocked all bridges leading the the island of Muharraq where the boy was from and where the funeral was held, to prevent citizens from attending. The opposition group called The National Islamic Accord Association announced 3 days of mourning.
