Navideshahed: A Bahraini opposition spokesman revealed on Saturday that the Manama regime has exerted excessive pressure on the family of a teenage protester who was killed by the Bahraini security forces earlier this week to give a false testimony to the court in a bid to exonerate the government from the crime.

The Spokesman of Bahrain's February 14 Revolution Abdul Raouf al-Shayeb said that the Al-Khalifa regime has exerted growing pressure on the family of Ali Jawad as well as a number of other witnesses in the case and intimidated them into changing their testimony in the government's interest.

The 15-year old teenager died in Bahrain on Wednesday after being hit by a tear gas canister fired by the security forces during anti-government protests in Bahrain.

Witnesses said that the victim, identified as Ali Jawad, was hit in the head by a tear gas canister fired from close range.

Meantime, Bahrain's interior ministry on Friday denied that police shot dead teenage protesters and in a mocking move offered a $26 500 reward for information about his killers.

Al Shayeb said that the reward shows that the regime is trying to change the realities in the case.

Iran on Friday strongly condemned the killing of the teenage protester by the Bahraini security forces, and called on Manama to meet the Bahraini people's legitimate demands.

"The martyrdom of a teenager in Bahrain on the day of the greatest Muslim celebration (Eid al-Fitr) cannot be justified by any means or logic," Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast said on Friday.
