DUBAI: A Bahraini policeman has died of wounds he sustained in a bomb blast during protests marking the anniversary of a 2011 Arab Spring-inspired uprising, the interior ministry said on Saturday.

The "terrorist explosion" in the Shiite village of Dair outside the capital took place late on Friday and wounded "two on-duty policemen assigned to secure the road," the ministry said on Twitter, without giving details.

It was the second reported blast during the protests marking the third anniversary of the uprising among the Shiite majority for a constitutional monarchy in the Sunni-ruled Gulf state.

Earlier, the ministry reported another explosion in the similarly-named village of Daih, which caused minor damage to a bus transporting police personnel, pictures posted on Twitter showed.
