Interior ministry: Gunmen kill Bahraini policeman

Published: Updated:

A homemade bomb killed one policeman and left two injured in Bahrain late on Saturday, the interior ministry said.

General Tareq al-Hassan said police had confronted groups targeting a police station in the island of Sitra.

Al Arabiya’s correspondent in Manama said the island has been hosting a number of meetings held by illegal groups, such as Bahrain Freedom Movement, who are accused of frequently attacking Sitra’s only police station.

The same police station was targeted since four years, the reporter said, adding that attacks increase every year during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
