A bomb blast in a Shi'ite Muslim village in Bahrain late on Friday injured three policemen, the interior ministry said, in a further sign of anti-government sentiment since the opposition boycotted elections last month.

Friday's bomb explosion occurred in Bani Jamra, a Shi'ite village northwest of the capital Manama and was described by the interior ministry as a "terrorist blast" in a statement posted on its Twitter account.

The statement said authorities were taking "necessary steps", without giving further details.

Earlier this month, a Bahraini citizen was killed and an expatriate resident wounded by a bombing in a village southwest of Manama. Bahrain's largest Shi'ite opposition group, Al Wefaq, condemned that attack.
