22 year-old Issam Mohammed died in al-Awamiya on Friday, after live ammunition was fired into the crowd by troops. The troops began firing after protesters threw stones at them. Officials also said a security vehicle was shot at and attacked with petrol bombs.
Meanwhile, a Saudi Arabian man has been arrested by the country’s religious police for allegedly using Facebook to arrange dates with other men. If charged with being gay, the man could face massive fines, flogging, jail or death.Tags: gay rights | Issam Mohammed | protests | religious police | Saudi Arabia | Shia
