Manama – Seven people suspected of involvement in deadly bombings targeting Bahrain’s security forces have been apprehended, the public prosecutor’s office said on its official Twitter page on Monday.

The office said it had interrogated and remanded into custody “a terrorist cell that specialised in explosive projectiles and devices that can be detonated from afar”.

The suspects were involved in two bombings in December that killed a policeman and a civilian, the prosecutor said.

The office did not disclose when the group was arrested, who its members are or when they might face trial.
