MANAMA, April 19 (Xinhua) -- Two men have been killed and at least five policemen injured in two blasts with home-made bombs, Bahrain police said on Saturday .

A makeshift bomb went off in a car in Maqsha village, killing two people and injuring two others, the Interior Ministry said, adding that two charred bodies were found inside the car.

A few hours later, police announced that a homemade bomb was detonated on Janabiya Road, injuring the civil defense personnel who were extinguishing burning tires.

"Three civil defense members sustained multiple injuries and one admitted to hospital for treatment while several others were treated on site for minor injuries," the ministry said.
