Bombs in Bahrain capital Manama kill 2, injure 1
Five bomb explosions have struck the Bahraini capital, killing two people and injuring a third, say government officials RT reported.
The blasts come amidst escalating violence between anti-regime activists pushing for reform and the nation's Sunni monarchy.
Government authorities say the blasts were caused by coordinated homemade bombs detonated in the Manama neighborhoods of Gudaibiya and Adliya.
The first victim was killed in the initial bomb blast, while the second died of his wounds in hospital. A third explosion in Adliya seriously injured a janitor, said government officials.
Bahraini state news has condemned the blasts as a "terrorist attack."
The citizens of Manama have been warned not to touch any "strange objects" and to report anything suspicious to the authorities.
