MANAMA, March 3 (Reuters) - An explosion in Bahrain seriously wounded three policemen, including an officer, during a clash with protesters west of the capital Manama on Monday, the Interior Ministry said.

It said on its Twitter account that a group of protesters had broken away from a mourning procession in the village of Daih and started blocking roads. The explosion took place as the policemen were trying to disperse the rioters, it added.

There was no immediate word on what had caused the blast.

The Sunni Muslim-led island kingdom, home to the U.S. Fifth Fleet, has suffered low-level civil unrest since mass protests in 2011 led by majority Shi'ites demanding political reforms.

Negotiations between the government and opposition aimed at ending the turbulence have stalled. (Reporting by Farishta Saeed; Writing by Maha El Dahan; Editing by Alistair Lyon)
