March 7 (Bloomberg) -- Bahrain’s security forces arrested a group of protesters who attacked a police patrol in Sitra over the weekend, the Interior Ministry said today in a statement posted on its website.

Four policemen suffered severe burns when demonstrators in Sitra hurled “a large number” of Molotov cocktails at the patrol on March 3, the ministry said in a statement.

Tensions in the island nation persist a year after the government quashed a month of anti-government rallies by mostly Shiite demonstrators.
