Bahrain : The Killing of Hussam AlHaddad and the Unanswered Questions

Bahrain : The Killing of Hussam AlHaddad and the Unanswered Questions | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Late Friday night, news began circulating on social media that 16-year-old Hussam AlHaddad was in critical condition after he was shot by security forces in Muharraq. Soon word came through that he had died in hospital from his injuries.

The circumstances of Hassam's killing remain murky, with allegations that he was beaten by citizens in civilian dress following the fatal shooting. Footage of Hussam's corpse shows that he was shot in the back and side, challenging the police narrative that the shooting was in self-defence.

A Bahraini teenager died after clashes with authorities who used excess force, human rights activists said Saturday. ...

"The Ministry of Interior issued a statement confirming the death of a citizen tonight," the Bahrain Center for Human Rights said. "However, they stated that MOI security forces were defending themselves by following legal procedures, calling Hussam Al-Haddad a 'terrorist.' They neglected to mention that the security forces were armed and have caused the death of an unarmed 16-year-old."

 

[Terrorists are those that regularly take human life, this is the role of the Bahraini regime.  Terrorists are not those accused, in hypothetical argumentation, of taking human life.  There is nothing hypothetical about taking life, or about being the terrorist Al-Khalifa organization. ]
