A bomb exploded on a main thoroughfare on the outskirts of the Bahraini capital Manama on Sunday, damaging several cars but causing no injuries, in what the interior ministry described as a terrorist act.

“Terrorist bombing on Budaya Street damages multiple cars without casualties,” read a tweet by the interior ministry.

Bahrain last month executed three men found guilty of killing policemen, including an Emirati officer who was part of a Gulf force that entered the kingdom to help quell protests. An off-duty policeman was shot dead outside the capital last month in what authorities also deemed a politically-motivated attack.
