A bomb attack in a village in Bahrain has killed a policeman and wounded two others, the interior ministry in the Gulf kingdom said yesterday.
The attack late Sunday occurred in Diraz, west of the capital Manama, the ministry said on its Twitter account.
Witnesses said they heard a loud blast near the home of cleric Isa Qassim, where five people were killed last month when security forces opened fire to disperse a sit-in.
Police blocked all entries into the village after the bombing, witnesses said, adding security forces have been maintaining a cordon around Qassim’s house since the protest dispersal.
The Bahrain authorities sentenced Qassim in May to a suspended one-year jail term for illegal fundraising and money laundering.
