A Saudi teenager, Hassan Mohammad Zaheri, has died of his injures three days after he was shot by regime forces in the town of Awamiyah in the Eastern Province,Press TV reports.


Since February 2011, protesters have held demonstrations on an almost regular basis in the Kingdom's east, mainly in Qatif and Awamiyah, calling for the release of all political prisoners, freedom of expression and assembly, and an end to widespread discrimination.

However, the demonstrations have turned into protests against the repressive Al Saud regime, especially since November 2011, when Saudi security forces killed five protesters and injured many others in the oil-rich region.
