Officials in Bahrain are searching for ten escaped prisoners charged with terrorism. The prisoners escaped after armed gunmen attacked Jaw1 prison, located south of the capital city Manama, on Sunday.

The Bahrain interior ministry2 described the attack on Twitter. It said the five attackers were part of a “terrorist group” armed with automatic weapons. One police officer was killed in the attack.

Seven of the prisoners were serving life sentences for what the ministry called “terrorist acts.” The other three were serving long sentences.

Bahrain is a small island nation off the coast of Saudi Arabia. The country has faced low-level unrest since the 2011 Arab Spring protests. During those protests, crowds took to the streets to demonstrate against their leaders in several Middle Eastern and North African countries.

At that time, Bahrain’s Shi’ite Muslim majority and others demanded greater political freedoms from the nation’s Sunni Muslim rulers. Shi’ites have argued the Sunni-led monarchy3 does not treat them fairly. The government denies these claims.

The government began a campaign against protesters in April. Officials arrested several well-known political leaders and forced others into exile. They have also put thousands of people, mostly Shi’ites, into prison for being involved in anti-government activities.

The United States Navy’s 5th Fleet has a base on the island. Britain also is opening a naval4 base there.

巴林正在搜捕10名越狱的恐怖袭击罪犯,他们是在一群枪手冲击监狱打死一名警察后越狱的。

巴林内政部发推文说,一个“恐怖组织”的五名成员携带自动步枪和手枪星期天袭击了首都麦纳麦以南的这所监狱。

巴林当局说由于“恐怖行为”,10个逃犯当中有7个正在服无期徒刑,另外三个是漫长的有期徒刑。

目前没有人承认对袭击负责。另有一名警察在袭击中受伤。
