Bahrain Mirror - Reuters: An off-duty policeman was shot dead in Bahrain on Sunday in what the interior ministry called a "terrorist act", state news agency BNA reported.

The shooting follows increased unrest in the Sunni Muslim-ruled kingdom after the execution this month of three Shi'ites convicted of killing three policemen in a bomb attack in 2014. 

"The Interior Ministry mourns with great sadness and sorrow the martyr Lieutenant Hisham Hassan Mohammed al-Hammadi, who was shot and killed in the Bilad al-Qadeem area," southwest of the capital Manama, the interior ministry said.

"Initial indications suggest that it was a terrorist act and that he was not on duty", the ministry communique added.
