Another Teenager Dies After Qatif’s Manhunt


A Saudi teenager has died of wounds sustained four days ago in a police raid that killed a wanted Shiite man and a companion in oil-rich Eastern Province, relatives said on Saturday.

Saudi authorities informed the family of Hasan Zahiri, 16, that he succumbed to injuries, the relatives said, raising the death toll of the attack on a house in the Shiite village of Al-Awamiya to three.

If you add the death of Salman al-Bandari, which the government says it was unrelated to the raid, although it seems like it was, this raises the death toll to four people.
