A bomb blast in a Shi'ite village in Bahrain injured two police officers on Thursday, the country's interior ministry said.

"A terrorist blast injured two on-duty policemen in Karana village," it said on its Twitter account, giving no further details.

Bahrain, home to the US Navy's Fifth Fleet, was swept by unrest during the 2011 "Arab Spring" uprisings when the majority Shi'ites - who the government denies discriminating against - demanded political reforms.

Since then, there have been sporadic protests and a growing number of bomb attacks.
