DUBAI - Saudi security forces shot and killed one protester and wounded at least six others when they opened fire on a march in the oil-producing Eastern Province, home to a large Shi'ite minority, activists said on Friday.

They said 21-year-old Muneer al-Meedani died from a bullet in the chest fired by police while dispersing demonstrators in the center of the town of al-Qatif on Thursday. Saudi opposition websites said between six and 14 people were wounded.

No Saudi officials were immediately available to comment on the report.

Saudi Arabia has been spared the mass protests that have forced four Arab heads of state out of office, partly thanks to a generous financial package announced by the world's largest oil exporter early last year.
