An 11-year-old boy died two days after being shot by police during a clash with rioters, the Al-Manar TV channel reported on Sunday. A 15-year-old died Friday in the clash, which broke out over attempts to demolish illegal housing in a suburb south of Beirut. Al-Manar, which is run by Hizbullah, said the 11-year-old, Mohammed Hussein Naji, had been shot in the head by police. Naji's mother was shown on Al-Manar TV wailing "I fled with him from one place to another to protect him during the Israeli war. But he was killed by the Lebanese state."
