MANAM - A Bahraini protester has been found dead after he went missing for days following a crackdown by security forces on mainly Shi'ite Muslim demonstrators last week, a member of an opposition group said on Monday.

The protester, Jawwad al-Shamlan, disappeared after he left the Pearl roundabout where anti-government rallies took place earlier this month, said Mattar Ibrahim Mattar, a member of Wefaq, Bahrain's largest Shi'ite group.

Shamlan was later found dead with gunshot wounds to his stomach, Mattar said.
