Hani Abdul-Aziz Abdullah Jumah, 32,  is the nineteenth victim to fall prey to the Bahraini security forces' brutal attack on peaceful bystanders and protesters. Hani was killed on Saturday March 19th, 2011, but his family, who had been looking for him since, were only informed of his death on the evening of Thursday March 24th when security forces contacted them to pick up his body the next day.  Hani  was buried in Boori on Friday afternoon. Human Rights Watch called on the Bahraini government to investigate the killing of this young man and hold those responsible accountable for his death. HRW also provided a clear description of the attack against Hani.  Below is his death certificate followed by a (graphic) photo of him showing signs of torture.
