'Terrorist' blast kills Bahrain policeman, wounds 7
Bahrain's Interior Ministry characterized the explosions in Karrana, a village just west of the capital Manama, as a "terrorist" act, and later reported "several suspects" had been arrested.
There was no immediate responsibility.
Four of those wounded, including one seriously, were police officers, Public Security Chief Maj. Gen. Tariq Hassan Al Hassan said, according to the state-run Bahrain News Agency. The others hurt were civilians, including an infant who was with a parent.
