ABU DHABI - Assailants attacked the home of a Bahraini member of parliament with petrol bombs on Sunday for the second time in a week, the state news agency BNA said, the latest in a series of assaults on public officials and security personnel in the kingdom.

The most recent attack on the home of Abbas Isa al-Madi, chairman of parliament's Services Committee, follows one on July 15 in which was no one was hurt. Pictures published by BNA showed fire damage to walls surrounding the house.

The Sunni Muslim-ruled island, home of the US Navy's Fifth Fleet, has been buffeted by political turmoil since 2011, when mostly Shi'ite Muslim protesters took to the streets calling for democratic reforms and more say in government.

On Wednesday night, a car bomb exploded outside a Sunni Muslim mosque as worshipers attended late-night prayers in a district where members of Bahrain's royal family live.
