(Telegraph) Hundreds of Bahraini opposition supporters attended the funeral of a 22-year-old Shi'ite man in Diraz, west of Bahrain's capital, Manama on Saturday. Fadhel Mirza died after being struck by a tear gas canister during clashes with police, according to the opposition Wefaq party.
A police statement confirmed Mirza's head was struck by a hard object. After the funeral riot police fired tear gas to clear protesters. Youths responded by throwing petrol bombs in clashes that lasted into the evening.
The fate of the Bahrain Grand Prix, which was postponed and then cancelled altogether last year in the wake of violent civil unrest which led to at least 35 deaths, has become a major talking point with the issue having been raised on numerous occasions in Westminster. (Click link for further info)
