Bahrain: Police in Bahrain say a homemade bomb targeting a police patrol has wounded an unspecified number of policemen, the latest in escalating violence in the tense Gulf nation.
Anti-government factions have stepped up the intensity and frequency of bombings as part of a more than 32-month uprising by Bahrain’s opposition against the government.
Monday’s police statement says the blast wounded a “number” of policemen, including two seriously.
It says the bomb exploded on Saturday as the police were on patrol in Demistan, about 10 kilometres southwest of the capital, Manama.
