10 : 43 PM - 26/02/2014
Manama, Feb. 26 (BNA)-- The Public Prosecution has confirmed the natural death of a sickle cell detainee. The detainee was rushed to Salmaniya Medical Complex for medical treatment on February 19 after his health had deteriorated. However, he succumbed to his death early today despite all the efforts made by the hospital's special medical team to provide him with the needed treatment and care.

The death resulted from complications caused by the sickle cell disease which led to a lung clot, according to a medical report issued by the hospital. The Public Prosecution's coroner affirmed that the death was natural away from any criminal suspicion.

The deceased's family were authorised to receive the body to finalise burial procedures.
