A 17-year-old boy has been killed in Bahrain on Friday in clashes with security forces. More than 50 people have died, including protesters and police, in almost 20 months of near-nonstop unrest in the island nation, which is home to the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet. Saturday's statement from the political bloc Al Wefaq say security forces killed the boy the previous day during street clashes in Sadad village, southwest of the capital Manama, without providing details.Bahrain's Interior Ministry confirmed one person was killed in what it described as a "terror act" that included firebombs hurled at police.
