ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A bomb blast in a Shi'ite village in Bahrain killed a policeman on Friday, the country's interior ministry said. Bahrain, home to the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet, was swept by unrest during the 2011 "Arab Spring" uprisings when majority Shi'ites, complaining of discrimination, demanded political reforms. The Sunni-led government denies discrimination. Since then there have been sporadic protests and a growing number of bomb attacks.
