Nothing more new being reported than a minibus exploding.
Bahrain: Blast on parked bus near British Embassy
No reports of serious damage or injuries

Bahrain’s interior ministry says a blast occurred inside a minibus parked near the British Embassy, but there were no immediate reports of serious damage or injuries.
A brief statement posted by the ministry says the explosion occurred in a public parking area near the British diplomatic compound in the capital Manama. Investigators sealed off the area.
Security has been boosted sharply across Bahrain during annual Shiite religious ceremonies.
I wonder if there are any links between this blast and the recent storming of the British Embassy in Teheran and the ratcheting up in tensions between the UK and Iran? Given the Shi’ite affinities between the two, this could well be the case.
