(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Thirty-two people accused of mounting a terror attack on Bahrain's Sitra Police Station will appear before the Higher Criminal Court on October 18. Out of these 32, 15 will be tried in absentia.

Bahrain's Public Prosecutor has charged them with setting fire to public properties, rioting, possessing Molotov cocktail bombs and unlicensed explosives and white weapons (knives).

"An arrest warrant has been issued to track down the 15 people who are at large and bring them to justice," Prosecutor Mohammed Al Dosary said on Sunday.

Over 100 vandals had attacked the Sitra Police Station, hurling Molotov cocktail bombs, iron rods and stones, and tried to set it ablaze and assault policemen on duty. The terror attack had left one policeman injured while the station suffered damages.

Police identified some of the perpetrators and confiscated explosives, knives from their houses. Appearing before the Public Prosecution, they confessed to taking part in the attack.
