At least four policemen were injured on Saturday in a bomb attack in a Bahraini Shiite neighborhood, the country's Interior Ministry said.

It is the third attack targeting policemen in less than a month, according to the ministry.

"Four policemen were injured, one of them was in critical condition, in a terror blast in Bani Jamra," said the ministry.

Last month, five policemen were injured after a home-made bomb exploded near the Sitra police station ahead of the F1 Grand Prix 2012 in Bahrain.

On April 9, three policemen sustained serious injuries after a bomb made with petrol exploded in East Eker, close to Sitra.

The country also witnessed armed robberies targeting money exchange recently.

At least two cases have been registered as masked gunmen entered money exchange outlets in Riffa and Salmabad and took over 25,000 BD (about 66,300 U.S. dollars).

On April 29, a gym owned by Bahraini MP Osama Al Tamimi came under attack allegedly due to his outspoken criticism against the government. Police then found 30 bullets scattered around the gym, but no one was injured.
