Homemade bombs kill 2, injure 1 in Bahrain

Bahrain police say five homemade bombs exploded Monday in the capital, Manama, killing two people and seriously injuring a third.

The head of the Capital Governorate Police is warning residents to "not touch strange objects."  An investigation is underway, the police official says.

    I guess Bahrain police should just ignore it, since its "only" a home made bomb, who can it hurt? Just like the rockets from Gaza to Israel.

    Home made bombs ? As if the bombs used in Iraq & Other places which are used by terrorists are factory made. BBC is trying to belittle and mellow down the incident. Double standards ?

    Bombs of anykind are bad. The opposition by resorting to violence is showing the world their true colors and origin. For anyone who has lived here they know they are better off than in most developing countries.

    • not so stupid

      the pictures of the innocent dead men lying in a pool of their own blood and the firsthand details of the experience of the man who lost an arm and his body riddled with nails from the bomb is not sufficient proof huh? shame on you! grow a conscience. The Bahrain you barbarians stand for has no future. Violence is never the answer, especially not towards poor, innocent men who serve your country because you are too lazy to get off your backside and clean up after you! I can only hope against hope that Bahrain will once again be the 'home' I knew.

      It's not fabrication....I live just around the corner from where a pipe bomb just went off 30 mins ago and it's amazing the amount of destruction a pipe bomb can cause.

    Hatred towards south east asians worker is not new in Bahrain. There have been many many events for years where expat men and women been spit on, kicked, robbed and beaten by "innocent child protester". the cowardly. they been subjected to racist coments almost on daily basis. in the peak of violene there are incidences of tongue brutally cut and even killing of expat occurs in the areas control by protesters.
