MANAMA: Bahrain's main Shiite opposition bloc says a young man has died after being shot by authorities earlier this month.

The al-Wefaq bloc said Sunday that 19-year-old Fadhil Abbas Muslim and a friend were hit with live ammunition on Jan. 8 in the village of Markh, near the capital, Manama. It says Muslim's family received no information about him or his whereabouts until his death was confirmed Sunday.

Bahraini authorities had no immediate comment on the allegations. The shooting appears to match an incident announced by the Interior Ministry earlier this month in which it said two suspects in an investigation into a suspected weapon smuggling plot were injured while trying to flee police.

The man's father, Abbas Muslim, says his son is innocent and uninvolved in political activities.
