A homemade bomb targeting a police patrol in Bahrain wounded security officials in the Gulf country Monday, according to the Associated Press.
The blast reportedly wounded "a number" of policemen, including two who are in critical condition.
The bomb, believed to be an attack orchestrated by anti-government factions, exploded in Demistan where the police were on patrol, about ten kilometers southwest of the capital.
Since early 2011, anti-government factions, predominantly representing Bahrain's Shiite majority have clashed with oppressive ruling Sunni leadership who is backed by Western governments such as the United States.
The report did not provide a concrete number of how many were hurt in the attack.
