Protesters Reported Killed in Bahrain

Several protesters against the Bahraini regime were injured after security forces opened fire on a group of protesters. The report on the riot came from Iran's Press TV. Iran has been actively encouraging the rebellion in Bahrain, which has a large Shi'ite component.

The reported shootings took place during the funeral of a Shi'ite youth killed Friday. Bahraini officials said that the youth had not been killed by security officials, and were offering a reward for information leading to the capture of his killer.
