MANAMA: A petrol bomb attack on a patrol of Bahraini policemen seriously wounded one officer, the state news agency said yesterday, the latest in a series of attacks police in the country say they have suffered in recent months.
The policeman was part of a foot patrol in the Bani Jamra district, west of the capital Manama, said the state’s BNA news agency. It said he had suffered medium burns all over his body and had been taken to hospital for treatment.
The public prosecutor’s office also said this week that 15 people “of all levels of responsibility” would face charges for the mistreatment of medics, an apparent reference to a case in which a group of doctors said they had been tortured during their detention ahead of a military trial last year.
