1 killed, another injured amid clashes in Saudi's Qatif: Local source
A protester was killed and another was injured in the village of Awamiya in Saudi Arabia's northeastern Qatif region when police confronted demonstrators on Sunday, local sources told Middle East Eye.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity for safety reasons, a source on the ground said that following a protest march against the execution of Shia cleric Nimr al-Nimr, one person was killed in clashes between police and local youths.
Security forces had surrounded a group of young Saudis who were burning tyres, leading to the clashes. An eight-year-old boy was also injured in the showdown, the source said.
The dead protester was identified as Ali Omran al-Dawood.
