Bahrain police early on Thursday arrested 10 suspects after a bomb attack that injured seven policemen on patrol a few hours earlier.
Two arrest announcements, one related to seven suspects and the other to three, were posted an hour apart on the ministry’s Twitter account. The police added that the search operation and investigation they launched after the attack was continuing.
Earlier, the general director of the Northern Governorate Police said an explosion in Bani Jamra, a village west of the capital Manama, targeted on-duty policemen.
“The blast injured seven policemen, including one officer who is in critical condition,” he said. “Two other officers sustained serious injuries. All seven were referred to the hospital for treatment.
