A group of cross-dressing men were said to have attacked police and destroyed a patrol vehicle with firebombs in Bahrain on Monday, according to a local news report.

The police jeep was gutted by fire near a police station in the capital, Manama.

The attackers, disguised in traditional Arab women's clothing, also targeted the police station, Gulf Daily News reported.

"A group of terrorists wearing abayas and hijabs attacked the police station and a patrol jeep parked outside with molotovs," sources told the paper.

"The jeep was completely gutted and tear gas was fired to restore order. No injuries were reported and a manhunt has been launched to find the offenders."

Anti-government protests, often violent, have marred the island nation since February 2011.
