DUBAI - A remotely-detonated bomb injured at least seven policemen on patrol in Bahrain on Wednesday, a security source said.

"There was an ambush ... while they (the police) were working on unblocking roads, they were targeted and three of them are seriously wounded," the source said.

At least four other policemen were less seriously hurt in the attack in Bani Jamra village, west of the capital Manama, where youths have regularly blocked roads and clashed with police in recent months.

Police say they have been frequently attacked with homemade bombs since April 2012.
