Bahrainis have taken to the streets to commemorate the third anniversary of the death of a young man killed by security forces during an anti-regime protest.

The demonstration was held in the village of Abu Saiba, west of the capital, Manama, on Wednesday.

Ahmed Jaber al-Qattan was shot in the chest at close range by security forces in October, 2011, but an official report said the 16-year-old teenager died of a heart failure.

Since mid-February 2011, thousands of protesters have held numerous demonstrations in the streets of Bahrain, calling on the Al Khalifa royal family to relinquish power.

In March 2011, troops from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were deployed to Bahrain to help Manama quash the anti-regime protests.

Scores of Bahrainis have been killed and hundreds of others injured and arrested in the ongoing crackdown on peaceful demonstrations.

In June, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights censured the Manama regime for human rights violations. A total of 46 members of the international body expressed deep concern over the Al Khalifa regime’s crackdown on peaceful protesters.
