Protester in Bahrain dies after arrest

About 40 people have died in nearly a year of nonstop unrest between Bahrain`s Sunni monarchy and majority Shi’ites.



Manama: Bahrain authorities say a detainee has died after being taken into custody during clashes between security forces and Shi’ite-led protesters.

Thursday`s statement by the Interior Ministry says public prosecutors are investigating the death. About 40 people have died in nearly a year of nonstop unrest between Bahrain`s Sunni monarchy and the island kingdom`s majority Shi’ites seeking a greater voice in government and security affairs.

The brief statement gave no further details on the death, but said the detainee was hospitalised and accused of "vandalism" during widespread demonstrations on Wednesday.
Bahrain is home to the US Navy`s 5th Fleet.
