Bahraini security forces on Tuesday shot dead a Shiite protester outside a hospital in Manama where the body of a demonstrator killed earlier was being kept, a member of the opposition said.

"Fadel Salman Matrouk was shot by hollow-point bullet in front of Suleimaneya hospital where people had gathered for the funeral of the first martyr," Khalil al-Marzooq, a Shiite opposition MP, told AFP by telephone.

Msheyman Ali, who was injured when Bahraini police dispersed crowds of anti-government protesters on Monday in a village east of Manama, died of his wounds in the hospital, officials said earlier.
