Bahrain: Blast hits cars south of Manama
Attackers targeting Sunnis in Bahrain set off an explosion Tuesday that damaged several parked cars. The blasts came amid a crackdown on suspected Shiite dissidents.
The explosion in a residential quarter south of Manama did not cause any casualties, the AP reported.
Bahraini officials said Tuesday's blast struck vehicles belonging to Sunnis in a mixed Sunni-Shiite area south of the capital. The cars were parked outside a home in Hamed Town.
More than 250 Shiites have been detained since last month, and 23 political activists and others have been accused of plotting to overthrow the government.
