Bomb wounds four Bahrain policemen: ministry

AFP - A home-made bomb wounded four Bahraini policemen outside a Shiite village, the interior ministry said on Sunday, in the latest unrest to rock the Sunni-ruled Shiite-majority Gulf state.

The bomb was "planted by terrorists" near Janabiyah village, west of Manama, the ministry said in a statement carried by the official BNA news agency.

The device was "remotely detonated," the Al-Ayam newspaper cited a security official it did not identify as saying.

Police said later that security forces arrested "one terrorist" who had been involved in preparing the bomb that exploded late on Saturday.

Other culprits had been identified and would be arrested.

Earlier this month, a policeman was killed and two others wounded in what security officials said was a "terrorist" bombing outside a police station in the Shiite village of Sitra, south of the capital.

Bahraini authorities often use the term "terrorists" to refer to Shiite demonstrators who have kept up pro-democracy protests despite a 2011 crackdown backed by Saudi-led Gulf troops, sparking repeated clashes with security forces.

In mid-February, a police officer was killed by a petrol bomb during clashes with protesters, after a teenager was shot dead during a demonstration marking the second anniversary of the launch of the protests.

At least 80 people have been killed in Bahrain since the protests erupted, according to the International Federation for Human Rights.

Strategically located across the Gulf from Shiite Iran, Bahrain is home to the US Navy's Fifth Fleet and is an offshore financial and services centre for its oil-rich Gulf Arab neighbours.

Signs of foreign involvement in attacks against Bahrain security forces

Experts believe escalation of bomb attacks on security forces indicates presence of terrorist cell which has been trained abroad.

Acts that are strange to Bahrainis


DUBAI - A home-made bomb wounded four Bahraini policemen outside a Shiite village, the interior ministry said on Sunday, in the latest unrest to rock the Gulf state.

The bomb was "planted by terrorists" near Janabiyah village, west of Manama, the ministry said in a statement carried by the official BNA news agency, without specifying when the explosion took place.

The device was "remotely detonated," the Al-Ayam newspaper cited a security official it did not identify as saying.

Experts believe that the escalation of bomb attacks on security forces indicates the presence of a terrorist cell which has been trained abroad.

This cell, experts say, seeks to carry out violent attacks in Bahrain as part of an Iranian strategy announced by the Lebanese Hezbollah movement.

The aim consists in exporting unrest to the Arab Gulf states, especially Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, the experts say.

In addition to Tehran’s hostile statements and threats made by Iranian top officials and military leading figures against Bahrain, officials in Hezbollah has threatened to support the Shiite demonstrators to launch armed attacks in the Arab Gulf country.

Earlier this month, a policeman was killed and two others wounded in what security officials said was a "terrorist" bombing outside a police station in the Shiite village of Sitra, south of the capital.

In mid-February, a police officer was killed by a petrol bomb during clashes with protesters, after a teenager was shot dead during a demonstration marking the second anniversary of the launch of the protests.

In May, Bahrain banned opposition groups from having contacts with Hezbollah, as the kingdom moved to limit the Lebanese Shiite movement's suspected influence.

In April, the Gulf state listed Hezbollah as a "terrorist organisation" -- in line with the United States -- following a recommendation by the parliament.

"Political associations are prohibited from having any form of contact with the Hezbollah organisation," Justice Minister Sheikh Khaled bin Ali al-Khalifa said in a ministerial decree.

A second clause in the decree stated the Iran- and Syria-backed group was a "terrorist organisation".
