Protests were held in opposition-heavy villages across Bahrain on Tuesday as demonstrators demanded that the government release the body of a 20-year-old who died last week from injuries sustained during earlier clashes with police.
Mahmud al-Jaziri succumbed to his wounds after he was shot during demonstrations commemorating the second anniversary of the Gulf kingdom’s 2011 uprising.
The protesters are calling for al-Jaziri's body to be released for burial.
Editor's note: The Bahraini government disputes the demonstrators' claims, and says the body was released on Feb. 22.
