Bahrain police officer killed in 'terrorist' blast

File picture shows Bahraini police helping an injured comrade after a bomb exploded during clashes between protesters and security forces on March 3, 2014 in the village of Daih, west of the capital ManamaA police officer died in a “terrorist” blast in a Shiite-populated village in the Sunni-ruled Gulf kingdom of Bahrain, an interior ministry official announced Saturday. “Police officer Mahmud Farid died Saturday before dawn from wounds sustained in a terrorist explosion at East Ekar”, near Manama, said national security chief General Tareq al-Hassan in a statement published by national news agency BNA. Attacks on security forces have been on the rise in Bahrain in recent months, with three police officers, one from the United Arab Emirates, killed in a bomb attack in a Shiite-populated town on March 3. Another officer died on February 15, also by a bomb blast, in a Shiite village during protests marking the third anniversary of Shiite-led demonstrations, taking their cue from Arab Spring uprisings elsewhere in the region and demanding democratic reforms in the absolute monarchy.
