DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Hospital officials on Tuesday said one person was killed after security forces in Bahrain opened fire with tear gas and bird shot on thousands of mourners gathered for a funeral procession.

Officials at Bahrain's Salmaniya Medical Complex — the meeting point for the mourners — said the 31-year-old man died from injuries from bird shot fired during the melee in the hospital's parking lot.

The mourners had gathered at the hospital Tuesday for a funeral procession for a man killed a day earlier in Egypt-inspired protests.
