(MENAFN - Arab News) A Bahraini policeman died on Saturday after being wounded in a bomb explosion during protests to mark the third anniversary of an uprising led by the opposition.

The Interior Ministry said the policeman was one of four wounded by "terrorist" blasts on Friday.

"Some villages saw rioting, vandalism and the targeting of policemen. This required police to respond to these criminal acts with legal means," the ministry said, adding that 26 suspected rioters and vandals had been arrested the same day.

Dozens of protesters demonstrated in different parts of the island, throwing stones at police firing tear gas. "Three years since the start of the protests, we have seen no peace," said a 34-year-old clerk in Saar village who gave his name only as Abu Ali. "Every day...youngsters go out and burn tires on the roads and the police attack them with teargas."

Information Minister Samira Rajab said dialogue would go on, blaming "terrorists" for the clashes of the last few days.
