DUBAI - A 20-year old Bahraini died on Friday from injuries suffered during clashes with security forces, the Gulf's main opposition movement said, but the government said there was no evidence police were responsible.

It was the second death reported since the protests on February 14, which marked the second anniversary of an uprising to demand democratic reforms in the US-allied Gulf Arab state.

"Martyr Mahmoud Jaziri had suffered direct firing from close range in the head by regime forces during peaceful protests for the anniversary of the start of the Bahraini revolution," opposition movement Wefaq said on its website.
